Sea Glass Art and Designs created with genuine surf-tumbled beach glass, pottery, and shells

Many of the items used by people living near beaches eventually ended up in the ocean, where they have been tumbled and smoothed by the water over the years. Today, these pieces of beach glass and pottery have a new life as handmade sea glass art originals, prints, cards, stickers, note pads, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, and more.
