About

One winter's day walking along the beach, she looked down and saw something sparkling back up.

Sarah started this shop not so long ago as a way of offloading her massive collection of seaglass which she knew she would never be able to use (or would inevitably misuse). Her crafting and jewelry making skills are still being honed and this was the place she came to sell her beach finds.

Since that first seaglass discovery about 5 years ago, Sarah has grown to adore and obsess over the sea, the tide and all things nautical and beachy. She's that crazy beach lady found dragging her poor kids and dog around every beach in East Lothian and will venture further around Scotland for beach adventures.

She can't say for sure that this will go on forever as her creative impulses are to start making things with that ever growing collection. She can be found currently acquiring silversmithing skills and dabbling in the art of ... ahem... art. We shall see what the future holds for Sarah Sea Glass but one thing will remain the same, Sarah's spirit and the infectious way she has to inspire everyone into this world of seaglunking!

Hello and Welcome to Sarah's Sea Glass. This shop is your source for beautiful sea tumbled glass and pottery (and the other odd thing the North sea may give up) for jewellery and craft making projects. The glass is handpicked from the beaches around the East Coasts of Scotland. This is a family run business and at the moment includes a 4 year old, a toddler, their mummy, (sometimes their daddy) and their four legged furry friend.

We are proud of what Scotland has to offer the world and want very much to be able to be apart of that international exchange. When you buy from us you'll be buying a little piece of Scotland and I'm certain that richness will only add to the beauty of your creations!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
  • Money Order
  • Check
Payment
I accept paypal ,cheque or postal order as well. If you prefer to pay by cheque or money order please let me know when you purchase the item. It will take longer to process as I will wait for funds to clear before shipping your item.

Please pay promptly :) It makes things easier for me and you. If you have any difficulty with the payment process just send me a message and we can take it from there on an individual basis.
Shipping
Orders ship within 2-3 business days of cleared payment received although I can sometimes ship on the same day.

Within the UK shipping is via 1st class Royal Mail and delivery estimate is 1-2 days.

Outside the UK shipping is via Airmail, this typically takes:
-EU and the Rest of Europe 3-5 working days
-Everywhere Else 5-7 Days (but depending on the location can take up to two weeks and sometimes longer during busy holiday periods)

I assure you that It is NOT my intention to profit from postage and packaging. The costs quoted here are accurate, fair and non-negotiable. I will always combine shipping and if you there are overages (which can happen due to the nature of Etsy's listing system) I will issue a refund for the difference.

I will take NO RESPONSIBILITY for lost items in transit. I use the Royal Mail which is the cheapest and most reliable service. Although RARE, items are sometimes lost in the post and if you want the extra security that the cost of this is covered please convo for a quote for insured and tracked postage.

If the value of your order (not including shipping) is above £20 you will be asked to pay for the extra insurance. If you choose not to pay for this and the order is lost or broken in transit, the entire value is NON-REFUNDABLE. It is in your best interest to pay for this insurance and if you can afford it, for tracking. It is quite a high risk and as a small business I am no longer able to absorb this cost. This is subject to change.

Please be sure to enter your correct shipping address for purchases. In the event that Etsy and Paypal show two different addresses, your package will be shipped to the Etsy address.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not totally satisfied with your order I am happy to issue a refund.

** Be aware, if you have not read the information about how I grade seaglass in the additional information section and are dissatisfied with the quality, I will NOT issue a refund as I take great pains in describing and photographing each lot so that you will be accurately informed. Take the time to familiarise yourself with my process and you will NOT be disappointed. **

Contact me about the issue and please return the unwanted item back to me and upon receipt I will refund you the cost of the item.

All delivery costs are NON-REFUNDABLE.

If your item gets broken or damaged in transit please let me know as soon as it arrives. Most of the things I list are one of a kind and will be irreplacable but I can do my best to find a suitable alternative. Please return the broken item to me and upon receipt I will either send out your new item at no extra cost or issue you a full refund including the delivery cost to return the damaged item to me. (If the value of all items purchased is above £20- not including postage- and no extra insurance was purchased, the order is NON-REFUNDABLE and will not be replaced even if it is returned.)

If any other problem should arise please contact me directly. I am certain that circumstances unforeseen will crop up and it will be easier to take them case by case than try to write a general policy that may not apply to you.
Additional policies and FAQs
I have lots of "back stock" in a variety of colours, shapes, and sizes. If there is something you are specifically looking for, I probably have it. So please don't hesitate to get in touch if you want to tap into my unlisted items. Custom requests are NEVER a bother :)

Every effort has been made to ensure that all product descriptions are accurate. All measurements given are approximate and colours are as accurate as software limitations allow. All images and text are the property of SarahSeaGlass and should not be reproduced without express permission.

SEAGLASS GRADING SYSTEM
-Subjectively Understood and Described by the Artful Eye of the Collector- Sarah Gale

1.Utter Angelic Perfection- So Rare you will die from a heart attack. The Best of the Best of the Best SIR.- the description of the item will indicate that this graded item is utter perfection and you will not believe how amazing it is until you are actually holding it. You may even find yourself wanting to kiss it. That IS entirely up to you.

2 Jewelry Grade A- Unless otherwise specified this is pretty close to perfect. There may be natural shiny places OR "c" curves or a couple of what looks like scratch marks or dings- this is all natural and there are NOT that many of these very minuscule tiny imperfections. If this bothers your or is not conducive to your craft or art PLEASE look for listings that indicate it is utter complete perfection.

3. Jewelry Grade B- This is pretty well frosted BUT may have a shiny edge OR a few more imperfections. Alternatively, it has something unique up front but in back might not be totally frosted. To me, this still qualifies as jewelry grade because I've used pieces like it for that purpose and the imperfections ADD to its charm or can be hidden without too much trouble. THE PRICE will reflect that it is not Grade A. If you are not prepared to work with a few more imperfections or shiny edges here or there, please move up a level.

4. Craft Grade- Despite whatever cool letter, number or picture on it, this is more shiny that it should be, IT IS STILL seaglass or pottery as there is frosting to be found BUT it is not ever going to make it to the big league. There is a lot to be said for craft grade- it can still turn into a pretty awesome piece of jewelry but you have to be even more creative and FULL TO THE BRIM of ingenuity. It is NOT going to be expensive so hey at least you have cheap on your side, so maybe if you mess up with it, the seaglass gods will forgive you.
