A Journey into the Past - The Beginning of the Sea Glass Odyssey

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... sea glass odyssey washington
Chesapeake orange sea glass
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...

Not only was I beginning to want to spend more and more time actually looking for sea or beach glass, but at the same time I was trying to figure out some way of using it creatively. So I started searching the Internet for more information.

However, when I began to research sea and beach glass, I couldn't really find what I was looking for, such as
You probably have had a similar experience.

Compiling the Information on Sea Glass

Now, I've put what I've found by researching and learned by experience together - an ongoing process, as I continue to discover fascinating new tidbits on the beach and from others..

On the pages of this site, you'll find the answers to the questions towards the beginning of this page ... and much more. My husband David writes much of the material found here, but relies heavily not only on my experience but also on the excellent contributions of many of you sea glass fans.

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!

To start, go to the top of the left column. You'll see the main topics to look for.

Of course, with all the harder-to-find pages on this site, you might also want to search for specific information using the search box below. It will show you all our pages that refer to the specific word or phrase you are looking for.  For example, try entering 'red' here:

If you entered 'red' you see that there are over 100 pages on this site that mention red beach glass.

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,!
