About my MEDITERRANEAN SEA GLASS:
ALL of it is genuine and unaltered -- the real thing. Every piece has been naturally smoothed, frosted and shaped by the sand, gravel and surf action of the Mediterranean Sea. I collect it myself from beaches along the southern coast of Spain near my home in Gibraltar. (I'm prejudiced, but I think my sea glass is world class, especially my Sea glass Gems and my Weird and Wonderful pieces.)

SEA GLASS GEMS have totally rounded edges and smooth surfaces. Their frosting is complete and uniform.

SEA GLASS TREASURES have occasional nicks, chinks, irregular surfaces or some other feature that gives them individuality. Their edges may not be uniformly rounded, but the frosting will be sweet.

WEIRD and WONDERFUL pieces are an exotic and varied collection of unusual sea glass finds collected over a period of 15 years. Each has its own individual, exceptional characteristics. Some are of potential historical significance, given the location at which they were found or the chemistry of the glass itself. Others are just plain strange or peculiar. Others celebrate rare colors.

All of my sea glass offerings are gorgeous. Set your imagination and creativity free!

About

The ultimate in recycling -- Spread the Joy

As a craft worker, I'm constantly in search of new materials with which to express my visions.

Here at MyBitsAndBobs I'm able to combine a number of my passions. Few things give me more pleasure than to collect and sort bounty from the sea -- sparkling sea glass that shines with its own inner light. That it is a gift from the surf and can be recycled to live again in another's creations is also a pleasure -- one that I indulge in with my other supply offerings as well.

Living in Gibraltar, I'm lucky to have access to treasures of the western Mediterranean Sea and am happy to spread the joy.

    Raised in Nevada in a small ranching community. Our home was in a mountain valley near Lake Tahoe. When I was just a little girl my parents gave me a rock polisher -- nerdy, I know, but the spark of love for rocks and geology grew into an abiding flame. I'm equally passionate about the seaside. There is just something wonderful about gathering the bounty of the sea. Gives recycling a whole new meaning.
