Sea Glass

I was able to catch up a bit on some reading, while we were RV’ing in Florida these past two months.  One of the novels I read was Sea Glass by Anita Sherver.

At a local craft fair in Ocala, 009I came upon a vendor who was selling jewelry and noticed a necklace that she had fashioned out of sea glass.  Sea glass is actually a broken shard of glass that is smoothed and develops a patina as it tumbles in the ocean and sand.  I didn’t actually believe that people really collected “the trash of the sea.”  Of course I had to check it out on the web: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seaglass.

Now I am the owner of a necklace made out of a shard of green sea glass. The artist thinks that this particular piece of  glass was originally part of a beer bottle. Go figure.
