Welcome to this page about sea glass, us (the folks at Odyssey Sea Glass), and our sea glass odyssey!

We are Linda (Lin) and David Schneider.

 LIN: I am pretty much self-taught in sea glass wire-wrapped jewelry. I've been around art all my life because of my mom. She's been an artist for as far back as I can remember.

I grew up on the shores of Lake Erie and didn't know about sea glass then. It wasn't until visiting my mom, who had moved to Southern Maryland, that I really got interested in it. I was collecting sea glass and throwing it into containers. I didn't want to get rid of it but didn't know what to do with it either.

I did this for a few years.

Then my mom sent me a beautiful book on sea glass. That was when collecting sea glass took on a new meaning. It was a like a light bulb went off, and I searched the internet high and low for more information about sea glass.

We're talking about quite a few years ago, so there just wasn't a whole lot of information about sea glass on the internet then.

FINDING SEA GLASS: David (an ex-surfer) and I love to walk the beaches. He thought I was crazy "picking up trash".

Later on though, when he saw that sea glass was something that a lot of people were into, he got hooked too! Now, he's just as eager as I am to go to the beach looking for sea glass. Sometimes he's the one urging me to get out the door!

We've met some wonderful people on the beaches - all walks of life, young and old, all enjoying the beach. Some are there looking for agates, some just to walk, others are sea glass enthusiasts like us.

We're all on a treasure hunt, never knowing what we may find. I love the thrill and the awe of those special pieces of sea glass. There's just nothing that compares to the feeling you get the moment you spot a rare color or unusual piece of sea glass.

I really enjoy collecting sea glass. I hope that you folks who visit this website or persons who buy my sea glass wire wrapped jewelry will also get inspired with the joy of hunting and collecting their own beach glass and become avid sea glass collectors like the rest of us!

Who knows, you and I might run into each other on a beach someday, somewhere.

How we created this site: We always wanted to do work from home, from any part of the world, which would bring in a monthly income.

We also wanted to work at our convenience and at the same time enjoy doing it, too. We knew internet was the best way to accomplish this. We had tried several things on the net, but nothing came close to our expectations.

Then we stumbled upon SiteBuildIt (SBI) which we studied in detail. SBI had everything we were looking for, in fact much more than we had expected.

SBI guided us, non-techies, to build a successful website step-by-step at our own pace, helping us to build a nice little niche based on the passion and knowledge of sea glass collecting.

We now enjoy every moment creating this site. During the process, we learned many new things that otherwise we wouldn't have known at all.

If you too have a passion like us, whatever you are passionate about, and want to go forward to fulfill your dream, you are most welcome to have a look at how we did it.
