The Saturday beach glass pictures that are shared here on the page are very beautiful. I would like to know more on the origin of sea glasses. I am wondering how these beautiful glasses are made. Please share more.

Santa Cruz Sea Glass - Such fun!

Thank you for the comments - we've just started getting into sea glass & were SO excited to find these on our second trip out.

The 1st trip we went at high tide & found only very small bits, but on this day I checked the tide charts & went at low tide with great results.

I don't know whether this was an average day's find for that area or not. We met about a dozen nice people who looked to be experienced glass hunters - wetsuits, shovels & all!

If we should have such good luck on our next trips I'll keep you in mind, Nancy!

The information and photos on this site have really gotten us excited about a new hobby :)
