My Sea Glass Window

Sea Glass Crafts Window Hanging

Sea Glass Crafts Window Hanging

Here is a picture of my seaglass window that I thought you might enjoy. Some of the pieces are worn more then others.

The light shines through it. I have it hanging in my sun room.

I can't take all of the credit. My husband makes the frames for me.

I use Plexiglas for the background and then I glue the pieces of seaglass on with E6000.

You have to use Plexiglas because if you try gluing them on regular glass, the glass will crack from the weight of the seaglass.

It took me a few attempts to find this out.

I am glad you like it.

beach glass glued on existing window
by: Holly

Hi, I have a window over shower in bathroom that is 14" by 34".

Can I just glue beach glass to it or is it necessary to use a piece of plexiglass with a frame and mount it in front of existing window?

I read about the windows cracking and wonder how serious the cracks are. We live in Baja, MX so cold weather isn't a factor at all. The window is on north side of our house.

Question for you
by: Michele

Hi

I love your framed beach glass.

I am just wondering how you made the frame?

Is it a normal frame then just attach the plexglass to it somehow?

I have been collecting beach glass for over 30 years and I would love to make one.

Thanks

You can color your white seaglass using food coloring and either elmer's glue or matte Mod Podge.

good luck

I have a question for you...
by: bailey

Hello I love your window it is beautiful, but I have a lot of rounded sea glass. How did you use those pieces?

reply to beachgirl
by: Mona

I use E6000 for glue.

I always glue to plexiglass because I have never had luck gluing seaglass to glass.

It cracks the glass every time.

Try having someone make you a frame that is like a shadowbox that has glass on both sides and then gently drop your seaglass down in between them.

i bet that would work.

Good luck!

Just what I was looking for
by: beachgirl

Absolutely Beautiful... I have been trying to figure out how to do this...

I do have a question though, do you have any ideas for how I could make this two sided as we would like to frame the window and put it in a wall to let the sun from one side shine through to the other and I would like it to look great from both sides

beach bliss
by: MaryAnne

hi Mona,

Your window is just lovely!

This time of year in mass. it's hard to be outside much, but you have inspired me to get back to work with my seaglass.

I've made jewelry along with frames using seashells, pottery and seaglass.

Think I could hire your husband to make a frame?

Thanks,

MaryAnne

I don't stain the glass. This is all natural the way I found it on the beach.

staining sea glass
by: Sally

How do you stain seaglass? What do you use?

I have so many whites and would love to stain them cobalt blue or red even though that would sort of "cheating".

Sea Glass Window
by: joanne

Hi Mona, I also have been doing windows for years now.

One of my favorite spots for collecting is Monhegan island.

I cant believe there are two of us.

Best of luck there.

Beautiful!

Question
by: Seaglassbeach!

These projects look great!

I would love to try to make something like this with my seaglass collection...

What would I use to stain the glass.

Thank you so much!

You Can Use Glass
by: sickitten.com

And you can perfectly stain the beach glass.

I've made the windows.

One all natural and one where I stained the clear and light aqua pieces cobalt blue and dark aqua.

Will post pictures on this site by Monday.

I used glass epoxy to apply the glass, perfectly and seamlessly.

I lucked out and found a beach just loaded with well worn, odd colored glass.

A dream!

Thank you for this awesome idea!

I want to do something with our lovely glass that we collect on Lake Erie and am going to give this a try - not sure what E6000 is but will ask at the store -thanks again!!

I am so fascinated by sea glass - I can’t believe at 70 I found a new hobby.

Thanks for the opportunity to search and read up on this!


Sonja

Your site made me so happy tonight! Why?

Many happy memories swirled back into my mind when I saw your pictures. I spent my childhood on the beaches of Cape Cod and we spent many happy hours looking for sea glass.


Candee

It is a pleasure and refreshing to meet people in the sea glass community that are willing to share! I got some great tips from your site. It was wonderful not to spend my entire vacation looking for a beach. Thanks again!

Maryanne K.W.

Hi David and Lin.

Love your sea glass web site. I enjoy your picture of the month and intend on winning at least once.

I have been collecting and creating things from sea glass for over twenty years. I find my sea glass on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie in Cleveland Ohio.

Thank you for sharing your treasures with me.” Yours truly,

Cathy Lincks

Just wanted to let you know (since you were so helpful) that I won a blue ribbon (1st place) in Gifford Middle School Science Fair in the category of Environmental Science with my topic - Effect of a Florida Tidal Inlet on Wrack Line Sea Glass Volume.

Now, I will compete in the Regional Science Fair which will take place on Feb 2nd. My mom and dad and I had a lot of fun searching for sea glass.

Thanks,


Mary Hyde

"Hi David and Lin,

I have shared your website with my other sea glass fanatic friends over the last couple of years and they love it as much as I do.

Yours is my favourite website of all time and the very best website I've seen for everything sea glass.

I can lose myself for hours in your website. Dangerous place!"


Anne O, Toronto

Thanks so much for the information.

I visited Carbon Beach today.

Very small and few people but a nice supply of glass just as you stated.

Thanks!!



Jan

Hi Lin and David,

I have come to sea glass via my shell collecting and am finding it very addictive too. Last year I found a glass bottle stopper which was a thrill.

Very small and few people but a nice supply of glass just as you stated.

I really enjoy the newsletter and can easily spend an evening getting lost in the stories and comments.

Regards,



Anne Cram

Just wanted to thank you for all of your helpful information.

The sea glass community is filled with people who guard their "secret beaches" so it is refreshing to see that there are people who are willing to share.

It's so useful for those of us that don't live near a beach and travel to find our glass.

The information posted here lets us spend more time enjoying our adventure rather than wasting time looking for a great spot

Thanks again,

Hi David,
