When people think of beading material from the sea shore, the first thing that comes to mind are seashells. However, there are other materials that can be found on the beach.

Beach or sea glass can also be collected to make jewelry, often as wire-wrapped pendants. The glass has been polished smooth by the natural tumbling action of the ocean. Green, clear and brown are very common colours. For unusual finds - look out for grey, purple or red sea glass. The red variety is much harder to find. Apparently only 1 in 5ooo sea glass pieces are red.So next time you go walking along the beach, see if you can find some sea glass.
