Sea Glass Becomes Jewelry
Published:2010/6/19 16:42:57  Release:Yiwu WaLiangGe   Hits:883
Glass jewelry is nothing new. Glass has been used for centuries to make jewelry pieces. So, it's no surprise that sea glass is a popular jewelry component these days. If you are a beachcomber, your may have picked up a few pieces of this yourself.

Coastal Living has an interesting story about a Northern California town that is loaded with sea glass:

"Early in the 20th century, residents of Fort Bragg pitched their household waste-glass, kitchen appliances, and sometimes, whole cars-over these cliffs, then owned by Union Lumber Company and known locally as "The Dumps." Wilbur Lawson, 83, of the Fort Bragg-Mendocino Coast Historical Society, remembers poking around the junkyard as a kid during the 1930s. "There was always a fire lit in order to reduce the trash pile," he says, which might explain how that chinaware melded into a slab of solid rock. "This was a playground for us," he recalls. Despite rumors, he says a glass-bottle factory never existed on this coastlinelinks."

Here are some beautiful sea glass jewelry pieces, a pair of earrings and a bracelet, from By the Sea Jewelry:
