Announcement   Welcome to my new adventure! I have just recently stared turning my beach findings into jewelry. Each piece was handpicked by myself, my husband or my mother-in-law. In my shop, you will see beach glass, pottery, shells, and stones made into unique jewelry pieces. Each piece is a piece that I would wear!
I am by no means a professional jeweler. I am a lover of nature and I desire to turn that love of nature into something tangible that can be kept over the years. I only choose the best pieces of glass and stones that we have collected.

***Beach Glass***
If you are not familiar with beach glass, it is broken bits of glass that the ocean waves have tossed and turned against the rocks and sand for decades to give it that beautiful frosted smooth appearance. Some people will tumble broken glass artificially with sand in a "dryer." You can see the differences if you know what to look for. IE: black speckled spots and an overall uneven look. Every single one of my pieces has been found in the oceans across the Monterey Bay.

***Rarity of Colors***
The value of beach glass is partially determined by color:
Common: White, Kelly Green, Brown
Uncommon: Soft Green, Soft Blue, Forest Green, Lime, Golden Amber, Jade
Rare: Aqua, Cornflower, Amethyst, Cobalt Blue, Citron,
Extremely Rare: Orange, Red, Yellow, Turquoise, PInk, Black, Teal, Grey

***Pricing of Jewelry***
You may wonder why one set of earrings is $20 and another pair that look like it are $25 or more. Here is what affects pricing: The rarity of the color of glass, the amount of glass used, the time it takes to make a piece, and the cost of the jewelry trim. Please also keep in mind that we have spent HOURS scouring beaches looking for glass, oftentimes coming up empty. I hope you enjoy...

I love treasure hunting on local beaches and have been doing it for years with my husband. I have just recently decided to make these beautiful pieces into jewelry that is affordable and simple. My style is to let the natural beauty speak for itself in its simplicity. I hope you enjoy!

Additional policies and FAQs
***Upgrades***
If you would like sterling silver, platinum, or 14k gold filled chains or hooks rather than what is included with some pieces, please message me. I can easily change them out. The fee to upgrade varies. Please ask for cost.

****Sea Glass****
If you are not familiar with sea glass, it is made by the ocean waves tumbling the pieces in the sand for decades. There will be imperfections. This is natural!

I use the best quality 100% genuine sea glass I have on hand. The only tampering I do with these beauties is to drill a small hole in it.

If there is a piece that my husband and I didn't find ourselves, then it was acquired from a close friend or family member. I will not claim to have found it if I did not and will always let you know the origin of the sea glass you are purchasing.
