Sea Glass Festival

I spent a lovely, albeit brief weekend up in Erie, PA attending the 4th Annual North American Sea Glass Festival. It was an inspiring weekend celebrating everything sea glass from lectures, vendors, collectors and a shard of the year contest.

Above is a brief selection of my own beach glass collection with pieces found mostly on the southern shores of Lake Erie and maybe a piece or 2 from Southern California beaches.

My latest beach glass pendant now for sale in my etsy shop. It is an authentic piece of brown glass found on the shores of Lake Erie then wrapped by me with silver wire.

Finally, because glass is not the only treasure you can find on the beach, here is my collection of pottery shards also found near Lake Erie.
