Announcement   Chelsea Dunham presents...LOST at SEA Jewelry! Hand picked, hand made, and ready to be worn!

What is Beach Glass?
Glass found on beaches along oceans, bays, rivers or large lakes that has been tumbled and smoothed by the waves, water and sand, creating smooth, frosted shards of glass.
Okay, where did this glass come from?
East Coast beaches from Long Island to Manhattan to new England! As an avid beach glass fanatic, I have spent years trolling my favorite beaches, looking for the very best pieces I can find. I love bringing these beautiful little pieces of art and history to life!
The 3 C’s (and a Q)? Color, Cut, Clarity = Quality!
Beach Glass isn’t your ordinary litter. Every piece started somewhere: a rare piece of blue could have been an old wine bottle or a broken Vick’s bottle from the 1960’s. A brown piece could have come from your average beer bottle or a pirates whiskey jug from the 1400’s! The more worn, the older and the bigger the shape the rarer! What’s your glass’s story? Use your imagination…It’s traveled a very long way to get to you! Enjoy!

These are so lovely! I put them on as soon as I took them out of the package. I love the unique and delicate design. I can see myself spending too much money here.

About

Chelsea Dunham presents...LOST at SEA Jewelry! Handpicked, Handmade, and Ready to be Worn!

From the time I was a zygote, I have been at the beach, gaining me the nickname, "Mermaid" amongst my closest friends. I'm at the shores of Long Island, NY, year-round swimming, running, painting, surfing and trolling for treasures in the sand. After years of collecting enough beach glass and shells to fill a house, I started figuring out how to turn these natural gems into beautifully wearable pieces of jewelry using fine metals and wiring techniques. I started out just giving them away to friends and family as gifts, or wearing them myself for fun, but so many compliments came in that people started suggesting (okay, downright forcing) me to open up an Etsy shop…so I did! I’m absolutely fascinated by beach glass aka sea glass not only for its beauty but the history behind each piece. Sea glass is found on beaches along oceans, bays, rivers or large lakes that has been tumbled and smoothed by the waves, water and sand, creating smooth, frosted shards of glass. Every piece started somewhere: a rare piece of blue could have been an old wine bottle or a broken Vick’s bottle from the 1940’s. A brown piece could have come from your average beer bottle or a pirate's whiskey jug from the 1400’s! The more worn, the older and the bigger the shape the rarer. I have spent years roaming-about my favorite beaches, looking for the very best pieces I can find and I love bringing these beautiful little pieces of art and history to life! I catalog everything I find so every piece I make is accompanied by a map and explanation of where your glass came from… So you’ll have proof it’s genuine and fun knowing a little bit about what you’re wearing. I especially find joy in creating pieces for fellow-beach glass nuts out of their own special pieces, so please feel free to contact me if you have something sitting on your shelf that’s just begging to worn :)

Like I always say: What’s your glass’s story? Use your imagination…It’s traveled a very long way to get to you! Enjoy!

    Hi! I'm Chelsea, many thanks for visiting! After a lifetime of walking up and down my local Long Island beaches, picking through shells and sea glass, I discovered that these tiny natural treasures are their most beautiful when worn as jewelry!
