The process of natural sea glass begins

when broken glass of any type (bottles, jars, tableware, etc.)

makes its way into the sea

and the shards settle onto the sandy ocean floor.  

 

Natural wave action transforms the ocean

into Mother Nature's tumbler,

rolling the glass over continuously for many years-

often decades.

 

Once smooth, rounded and frosted, 

these pieces are considered authentic sea glass.

 

Eventually, the sea glass makes its way onto the shore

where wandering beachcombers search

under rocks and in crevices 

with hopes of finding these small treasures.
