This color really speaks for itself. The richness of the blue comes out even more when the glass is wet or lightly oiled. Years ago, we used to bury broken blue bottles in the sand at lowest tide, in hopes that they would one day return to the shore as polished pieces of glass. It's impossible to know if any of the pieces I find nowadays could be from those very bottles, but it's tempting to suppose.

This group of 11 cobalt triangles could be used for jewelry, either wire-wrapped or drilled. They could also be used for mosaic, hanging art, or garden art. They could also be used to decorate a terrarium, fish tank, or even a marimo enclosure. I feel like my Marimo (whom I've named Mossimo), is happier bouncing around in a sparkling, colorful little tank.

I find these pieces of glass on the beaches in and around Seattle, WA. I have access to a sand-blasting machine at a local metal foundry, so I've taken many of these pieces there to smooth down any rough spots or chipped edges. The fine grit of the sand simulates the smooth texture of wave-tumbled glass, while giving it a nice, even frost. The shine and color of wet glass can be simulated by rubbing a small amount of oil onto them.

Thanks for looking and have fun on Etsy!
