NEW FINDS 24.2.11

These WERE the favorites from my collection.

Couldn't believe it when i found gorgeous blue 'shooter'glass marble at Frankston among rocks near boat ramp.

Also found ceramic foot from a statue there, and these other treasures too.

Tonight at Frankston my husband found two pieces of red glass and an orange piece. I've been collecting for years. I put it down to beginners luck!

Just had success with drilling hole in sea glass, glass/tile drill bit.

Frankston Seaglass Collection

Hi Nat'
Frankston has to be an amazing beach to find all sorts of goodies.

My personal favorite! We may see each other down there one day.

I have a large collection of goodies and it is about time I added to it.

Leave some for me! :)

Maralyn, Frankston is my local beach..good hunting among the rocks near boat ramp on southern end of the beach.

I think people used to dump rubbish there.

Good hunting to you and thanks for feedback, Ive never met another sea glass collector and my friends love my collection, several kilos now. Nat.

Is this the same beach in Port Phillip Bay that I collect from?

If so...what a great find.

I haven't been down there for such a long time!

All these pieces are 'ripe', that is, all amooth. no rough edges...i'm pretty choosy and discard all sharp pieces

You have nice colors but really most of those pieces look like glass shards, not tumbled, rounded or frosted.

That's probably because Frankston is in an enclosed bay and doesn't get hardly and waves at all.
