Has quickly become one of my statement pieces. Used to live on the Central Coast, so it's nice to have a little piece of my past around my neck. Excellent craftsmanship! Will be back :)

I have always had a love for collecting sea glass. I find it fascinating that nature can turn someone's trash into something so beautiful.

I have always wanted to make jewelry from the sea glass that I have collected so a few years ago I decided to finally learn. I started out with simple sea glass designs and have now also included some enamel work. I truly love creating my jewelry and learning new techniques.

All of the sea glass that I use is collected by me and my family. We live a couple of hours from the coast, so it is easy to take day trips to Monterey, San Simeon, Cambria, and other locations along California's Central Coast.

Welcome to my shop! I have been collecting beach glass (sea glass) for some time now, and I am very excited to be able to share these beautiful treasures with you.

All of the beach glass that I use is genuine, found by me or my family. I do not alter the surface of the glass by tumbling, etching, polishing, etc. When I show people my jewelry, they often say, "Oh, you find the glass then tumble it until it is smooth?" Nope! This is exactly how I find it - perfectly frosted and smoothed by decades of exposure to the elements.

At this time, I only accept PayPal. I do expect immediate payment at the time that you purchase the item. If you want something put on hold while you think about it, just let me know.

If I do not receive immediate payment, I will send you a convo and an e-mail reminding you. I will follow this up with an additional convo or e-mail. If I do not hear from you by then, I will assume that you did not wish to purchase the item, and it will be relisted.

I understand that people change their minds. Just let me know as soon as possible so that I can relist the item. I will not leave negative feedback if you change your mind!
I ship Monday through Friday. If you order something on Friday and need it shipped on Saturday, I will do my best. I live in a very small town and the Post Office is only open for two hours on Saturday (if that).

I ship the items through First Class Mail with Delivery Confirmation. If you want anything different, just let me know.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: Due to the varying costs between countries, I do not currently offer international shipping in my listings. I will be very happy to ship an item to any country, just send me a convo first and I will figure out the shipping cost. As stated above, the cost will vary between countries, but is usually around $6.00 to $10.00. I ship via first class mail.

Please note that I fill out the customs form marked "merchandise" with the actual value of your item. You are responsible for any additional taxes/charges which your country may charge.


All items will be shipped in a small gift box inside a bubble mailer. The box is made out of 100% recycled material. If you would like the box wrapped, just let me know. I am more than happy to do this at no cost to you. Just convo me at let me know what you want. I can also include a card or note if you want me to ship this to someone other than yourself.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be just as happy with your item as I was while making it. If you are unsatified for any reason, please let me know. I will work with you to make it right.
Additional policies and FAQs
Because there is so much misunderstanding, and even fraud, I never purchase my sea glass from third parties. This is the only way I can guarantee that you are getting genuine beach glass. Although there are many reputable sellers of genuine beach glass, there are many who are not. If you see someone selling a handful of beach glass for only a couple of dollars, beware! I do not know anyone in their right mind that would bend over and pick up 100 beautiful pieces of genuine beach glass and then sell them for $5.00. (I have not seen this done on Etsy, but I have on other sites).

Please convo me if you have any questions or concerns.
