About

Treasure hunting on the beach

My love of sea glass began when I worked at a park on Lake Michigan.

Melissa - my awesome, world traveling niece - visited one day, and found some glass on the beach. I had no idea what it was at the time, but I researched it – because that’s my brain’s automatic response to new, interesting, yet unknown items/information – and discovered that it was beach glass.

I grew up with Goonies and Indiana Jones, so hunting for treasure has always appealed to me. Finding beach glass feels very much like treasure hunting – even on a beach that consistently provides glass, you never know what you’ll find. It could be 3 pieces of white, or an amazing day of 200+ pieces, including a handful of rare blues!

All of my beach/sea glass is genuine. Most of it (the pieces from Lake Michigan, California and France) was found by me and my family. The pieces from Florida were a gift from a lovely woman and her adorable mother. The few Haitian pieces that I have were collected by a missionary. Nearly all of my English sea glass pieces were bought online (though I did collect a few in Brighton).

We also clean up trash from the beaches on our walks, because clean beaches are happier and prettier places to spend time.

The only thing that I do to enhance the glass is to wrap, solder, or occasionally drill a hole in it. I do not put it in a machine to tumble it.

Thank you for reading about me and my shop! Over on my blog I write about art, beach glass, travel, and my spoiled dogs:

In addition to making jewelry, I also like to take photographs during my travels. If you're looking for a pillow with a beach scene, or an art print of the Mediterranean (and much more), they can be found here:

    I started collecting sea glass when I was working as an interpretive naturalist at a park on Lake Michigan. I love the unique nature of each piece and the fact that each one has a unique history and a story to tell.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
Most items will be shipped within 3 business days after payment is received. Custom orders will be mailed after they are created. More information can be found in custom listings.

To receive the discount on shipping, purchases must be paid for together in one payment.
Shipping
We currently ship within 3 days of payment (with the exception of custom orders, which take time to create). This turnaround time will decrease when I have regular access to a computer again.

We ship using USPS First Class or Priority for domestic & First Class International.

Please remember that we cannot control delays caused by the USPS. Please place orders well in advance of the date you need them!

Confirm your address before ordering:
All packages are shipped to the address you provide at checkout so please confirm it is correct before you place your order. All domestic orders ship with tracking information, which should be updated regularly by the USPS.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for any taxes, customs fees, or other amounts levied by your home country. Please check with your Customs office and/or Postal Service if you are concerned about possible tariffs. Customs forms will contain accurate price information and the description will correspond to the listing on Etsy. We do not mark items as 'gifts' on customs forms.

If you live outside of the United States and would like a package shipped Priority for faster delivery, please contact us before purchase and we'll provide a quote for shipping costs.

CANADIAN BUYERS: As our Canadian customers are no doubt aware, there is currently a labor dispute that is affecting Canada Post. We will continue to monitor the situation and work with our buyers, but obviously have no control over delays that may affect delivery within Canada. Please contact us if you have any questions.
Refunds and Exchanges
We want you to be happy with your purchases. If you are not, please contact us and we'll work with you to address any problems with your order.

Damaged items:
If an item arrives damaged, please message us within 2 calendar days of receiving the package. We'll need a photo of the damaged item to provide to USPS for an insurance claim. If there is damage to the outside of the box/package, please also send a photo of that.

Lost Item Claims:
Etsy and Paypal do not support refunds for lost merchandise if tracking shows the package as Delivered. However, we will help you investigate a claim of non-delivery even if the tracking information shows that the items was delivered. We do not offer refunds for products that are listed as delivered by the USPS.

All other refunds:
A 20% restocking fee is charged on non-defective merchandise. Unfortunately, shipping fees are not refundable. Returns must be postmarked no later than 7 days after receiving. Items should be returned in new, unused condition.

Return the product in the original product box or securely wrapped in bubble wrap inside an adequate shipping box, not an envelope or padded envelope. Refunds are only issued after the merchandise has been returned and has been delivered to us.
Additional policies and FAQs
If you are looking for something specific and don't see it, please contact us. We have a large supply of sea glass and may have just what you are looking for!

If an item is not the size you need, please contact us BEFORE placing your order, to ensure that it can be re-sized. Many items would need to be completely deconstructed to be re-sized, and would therefore be a custom order (which we're happy to make for you).

Custom Orders:
If you have collected sea/beach glass or stones and would like to have it made into custom jewelry at an affordable price, we would be happy to help! Message us via Etsy and expect to hear back within 48 hours. Prices start at $15 for earrings and $20 for necklaces.

Custom orders are non-returnable. We will communicate with you throughout the process, and can provide photos of items before they ship, so you will be completely aware of the details (size, color, etc.) of your item and can approve them before shipment. Full payment is required before work begins. Design changes that are requested after work has begun will incur additional costs.
