Sea Glass Mini Wind Chime

Mini Wind Chime

I am a newbie at this but live on the beach!! Collecting for two months now.

Found the glass and also the black piece holding the glass, (Still not sure what it is, any ideas? When I drilled it, it almost had a charcoal smell but it is hard).

I bought a mini mite dremel to drill my dog's nails and one day I saw a tiny little diamond tip bit, #7134 and thought "hum, wonder if this will work?" and there you go! Used thin twine.

I even found a PRIZED ruby red piece a few weeks ago and decided to add it to the piece!

It is about 10" tall and 4" wide with about 70 pieces of glass.

Beautiful !

The black piece could be a piece of black basalt wedgewood or pottery, that is made from lava rock.

That might be why it smelled smoky when drilling it.

Sea Glass and Memories
by: Anonymous

I lived by the ocean growing up in Massachusetts.

Now I live in Oklahoma and have my collection of shells, rocks and sea glass to remind me of home.

I loved collecting pieces as a child.

Your mobile reminded me of those special childhood memories.

It is just beautiful!

Lovely, glass art sculpture.

It is one of the nicest sea glass craft work I have ever seen. If I find this one in a store, I would buy it, no matter how much it is.

I love it.

I love your wind chime piece! It is beautiful!

I have tendonitis in my hands and was wondering how difficult the glass was to drill?

Did you drill your glass in water?

You have encouraged me to actually get a drill, which I have been putting off.

But I don't think I will be able to do as good as you!
