Most likely, it is that the combination of qualities of beach glass can't be found in any other jewellery medium. 

Look at this list:

  • It is found only on beaches.
  • It can be found by anyone with access to a decent beach and the time and desire to search for it.
  • It has a pleasing luminosity or glow due to the effect of the "frosted" surface and diffusion of light.
  • There is a great variety of colors (although some are very rare).
  • It is one of the few *environmentally-friendly types of jewellery. 

I'm sure you can think of other characteristics that make beach glass and seaglass jewellery so popular.

Finding Beach Glass Jewellery:

Before the advent of the Internet, it was pretty hard for someone living away from the coasts if they were looking for beach glass jewellery.

Perhaps they might come across some in a catalogue somewhere or in a magazine, but that would have been more by chance than deliberately looking for it.

Probably the only way a person would have acquired jewellery made of sea shells, sea glass, or other beach inspired jewellery would have been during a vacation or site-seeing trip to the coast. 

While browsing a seaside store, something along the line of beach glass jewellery could have caught their eye, and it would be bought and taken home.

However, with the advent of the internet, it became easier and easier to find beach-inspired jewellery, including our favorite, beach glass jewellery.

Now, it is as easy to find as a search on one of the major search engines. You have access to sea glass jewellery on the East and West Coasts of the United States and Canada as well as the Great Lakes regions.

You even can "window shop" delightful beach glass jewellery from the United Kingdom, including England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland.
