It happened late one afternoon.
I had been walking slowly along the shore near my mother's house on the Chesapeake Bay looking for beach treasures...
Wanting to make one last trip down the small beach, I turned around and wow!!!
Tumbling up the beach pushed by a small wave was an orange piece of sea glass!
I couldn't believe it at first. Then I started jumping up and down. I just had to run home and show it to everybody...
Here's what happened to me and why I decided to write about this wonderful subject.
Like many of you, my "odyssey" or "journey" began quite a few years ago.
While enjoying walks on the shore, first on Lake Erie and later on various Atlantic and Pacific beaches, I began picking up sea glass (also known as beach glass).
Then as time went by, I found myself really getting excited and even hooked on finding more rare and exotic pieces.

If you've faced the same kinds of questions I had when I was starting out, I know that you'll find these 2,000+ pages of information that we have put together very interesting and useful!
Even more fun is to participate in sharing your thoughts and ideas, crafts and photos, and to see what others are doing, go to the Odyssey Sea Glass Forums.
Happy hunting on your Sea Glass Odyssey,
David and Lin Schneider
