About

Found objects from a sailing journey, inpsired by the freedom found at sea

Salty Bird Seaglass was created by me, Julie. Hi there! I'm a voyaging sailor living aboard my small sailboat, Arcturus. Originally leaving Ventura California, my boyfriend and I set out in search of life and adventure on the sea.

Every anchorage we stop at I search for sea glass treasures in hopes of finding some unique and rare gem. Combing the beach for treasure seems to be a part of me. As my collection grew I felt it was time to share my treasures and it would best be done through jewelry.

After my first batch was created, I left my treasures in the care of my dad (inventory and shipping extraordinaire) and set off for another season on the ocean.

Two years after leaving California, floating peacefully in Panama, new jewelry is being dreamed up while star gazing from the v-berth onboard Arcturus.

All seaglass jewelry uses naturally tumbled sea glass and recycled sterling silver (from items like Grammy's old silver spoons) melted down to be re-formed into wearable rings and adornments.

I am so happy to share my sea treasures with you! May they be reminders of the freedom we find by the sea. – Salty B.

    Hola! I am a salty little sailor. I dream of light winds, full sails and every color of sea glass in the rainbow.

Salty Bird Seaglass is all about reclaimed trash (what sea glass is!) and sustainable, hand-made goodness. All the seaglass in my jewelry is genuine, ocean-tumbled sea glass that I have collected on various beaches around the world. My jewelry is made with recycled silver and all hand made by me. Each piece is formed with love and care.

All silver will tarnish over time and eventually turn black unless cared for. Some of the items in my shop I intentionally tarnish and then polish to give them a rustic finish. To keep your silver clean you can use silver polish, available at most grocery and drug stores or polishing cloths. It is best to store your jewelry where it is not exposed to air (especially sea air, it turns out :).

Seaglass will collect oils and dirt over time and cleans well with soap and water and quite remarkably with a little Windex. For information about each piece of glass, see individual item descriptions.
