New to site...drilling question
by: Barbara

Hi All,
I'm a newbie to this site. Also glad to see others that are fascinated with this amazing stuff. I live in Seaside, CA and seaglass is abundant here at low-tide. Some days there is just nothing but seaweed, but then there are days like I had on Tuesday where I spent most of the afternoon bending over to pick up some pretty teals, and aqua pieces.

I am trying to create a windchime but for the life of me, I just cannot seem to get a hole drilled into any of them. I have a dremel with diamond cut drill bits, wet the glass, but it doesn't penetrate. Does anyone have any suggestions? I really would like to get some of my projects made in time for the SeaGlass Festival in Santa Cruz next month.

Love it! It's beautiful!

Diane, you are SO KIND to give a treasured mobile away! Wow, that has to be hard to do... Sydney, do you allow visiting hours for Diane to come see her baby?

Do many pieces shatter when you drill them? It has to be scary to drill into a favorite piece:-)

Reply to Megan - thanks:)

Megan, This was made as a family gift for X-mas, so I wanted to add a mixture of real from the ocean pieces of cobalt blue, white, pink,and green beach glass,as well as some man made tumbled,and a few stained glass.

Pale pink, and 1 or 2 cobalt blues in this one are from the SHORES OF CAPE BRETON ISLAND, Nova Scotia, and the other real pieces, I found on Fire Island, NY beaches and or Martin County, Florida ones...

Really love beach glass, and have been collecting it as far back as the mid 1970's, so drilling through treasured cobalt pieces, etc.,is hard for me to do... THANKS :)

Wind Chime
by: Sydney

I have one of the sea glass mobiles that Diane made and I love it. It's inside now and looks great, but I'd like to find a protected place on the porch to use it as a wind chime. She put a few pieces of stained glass at the bottom which adds a pretty twinkling sound to the clicking of the sea glass.

Wow, so beautiful! And you have so many blue pieces!
Do you have a neat place in Hobe Sound to find sea glass or are some pieces tumbled glass?
I live in Jupiter, so I am interested in location location location:-)

"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.




" 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."



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,


Anonymous Viewer
