Real Sea Glass Beads!
January 15, 2015
Hi,

David and Lin on sea glass hunt, Huanchaco, PeruThis is the first newsletter of a new year, although the year is already a couple of weeks old.

A walk on the beach after a few days or weeks of not going is always exciting - you never know what the changing tides, winds, and currents will uncover or wash up.

We have had varying success ourselves; some real nice finds but then... our last walk a couple of days ago we almost got skunked even though we searched for a couple of hours over a mile of beach.

We ended up with only a few of the common colors, really a wash out for this beach (the one in the photo above) but what can you expect. There's always a day at work that seems unproductive. A tough job but somebody's got to do it .

Original Old Glass Beads Tumbled by Waves and Found Years Later

Some of the uncommon and unusual beach glass finds are marbles, bottle stoppers, mixed colors, etc. Among these rarer finds you might be fortunate to encounter glass beads and buttons.

Where did these come from?

These may have been trade beads and buttons used for trading with American Natives in the past, beads and buttons being brought in on a ship that foundered, beads and buttons dumped in an old dump site, or even a bead or button just lost while its owner was on the beach.

Here are some beads from our (Lin and David) collection, most of which we've found on Pacific and Atlantic shores in North and South America as well as a collection of beads and buttons that our good friend Robin Ramon has found:

We hope that you can experience the joy of searching for treasures on a beach near you. From the tiniest bit of common glass to a more exotic piece, each is a real treasure.

Wherever you are in the world, whatever your plans are for the coming month, whoever your favorite companion is, and however you go about doing it...

Happy Hunting!

David and Lin
