Sea glass extroidenair
by: Ted

I found a spot where there is seemingly an endless supply of sea glass. I would tell you but then it would be all gone.

Long Branch, NJ
by: Rebecca

I have been seaglassing in Long Branch, New Jersey for several years and have always found it to be excellent--for glass and pottery.

Last Christmas was one of the best sea glassing days I've ever had--pinks, jadeite, lots of turquoise and cobalt.

But, since the sand replenishment project this past spring/summer (2014), the glass is all gone. I'd say I've found five or so pieces total in my last three visits.

I don't know if all the glass has been buried or what, but it's gone.

I'd definitely appreciate knowing if this is the case in all NJ coast towns, or if I can find another beach within driving distance to try my luck.

Over the years, I have never found seaglass on LBI...until the summer of 2013.

Found a few nice pieces in Barnegat Light.

One looked like a very old coke bottle piece and a few seafoam green pieces.

I also found another piece this past summer (2014).

I spend my summers there every year and would LOVE to know the secret spots!

Post hurricane finds
by: Rebecca

I have never collected sea glass before, and don't really even remember ever seeing it, but in the months following Hurricane Sandy, I have found all sorts of sea glass--and sea pottery--on the beach in Long Branch, NJ.

I'm now hooked on this hobby!

In a recent vacation with my family to New Jersey, we found over 20 pieces of sea glass including a fully intact bottom of an old vintage milk bottle!!! Found a lot of ambers but also got some cool light blues and greens..... we found one small clear piece that was perfectly round.

Seaside Park, NJ (1 town over from Seaside Heights, where the popular MTV reality show, Jersey Shore, is filmed)

We went to a beach called Island Beach State Park

Hope this helps!!!

Hi David,

I received your sea glass hearts and I LOVE them all.

Thank you so much for sending the extra hearts.

I was so touched by your thoughtfulness and I appreciate you sharing these special gifts from the sea! Hope to see more of your sea glass soon!

Thanks again,


Hi David,

Just wanted to tell you thank you for the monthly sea glass newsletter. I love it, and look forward to it.

Thanks again to you and your wife.


Hi David,

I just wanted to let you know I appreciate receiving my sea glass order so quickly.

Love the flowers, wave crest & rare pastels and the little extra surprise....you made my day!!


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!


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."


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!

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

What an AWESOME site! I love reading about it, looking at all of your pictures, and planning my next vacation to the perfect beach.

Keep up the great work!

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.


Mary Hyde

I am beginning to be a typical sea glass hunter - always looking for fun places to find glass!

Hi David and Lin!

I SO enjoy you newsletter! Please forward it to my sister. I've got her hooked on the beauty of sea glass!

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.

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

Gee, my heart races when I hear about all these marvelous finds.

Kudos to this wonderful site and for those who share their finds.

You've got a friend in me,

Norma Myrphy

I'm looking forward to my new hobby and participating in your odyssey Seaglass forum.



David & Linda,

So wonderful to have crossed paths with you and thanks for sharing your expertise on sea glass along with your wonderful website.

Ann & I have caught your infectious seaglass fever! Hope to cross paths again soon.

Happy and safe traveling!
