Waves - sea glass window

I've been collecting beach glass from Lake Erie in different parts of Ohio for 4 years, thanks to my Aunt Annie!

I decided to start a mosaic and sought an antique window pane, which weighs over 35 lbs.

This project took over 2 months and many days of glue laden hands and some moments of frustration as well as 3 revisions.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Mosaic on window
by: Sammi

I love doing sea glass mosaics on old windows and picture frames, so I was delighted to see yours.

Just the sensation of a piece of sea glass rubbed between my fingers is enough to get my creative juices flowing. I never know what I am going to make until I start.

Your work is really lovely.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. As far as the type of glue I use, I found that E6000 works the best. You can buy it at most craft stores and probably Walmart or Target.

This is one of the more beautiful mosaics I've seen. Excellent job.

Just curious what kind of glue did you end up using?

I've been trying to find one that will work and it's been a frustrating process.

Her Beach Glass Passion
by: Stephanie McClintock

Oh, Lisa your beach glass art is just lovely!

It's a testament to all the hours you've spent in the Lake Erie "stoop" searching for your colored treasures.

Now your fine tumbled shards have come together in this lovely mosaic. Your passion for beach glass and all that you can create shines through the window panes of this piece.

Keep on searching and creating!

Excellent! sea glass window
by: David @ OdysseySeaGlass

Wow, that is really a beautiful work of art! I can imagine how long, tedious and at times frustrating that must have been. But you stuck too it and created a unique window that is like nothing else in the world.

Great job!
