A cute little bag filled with 50g of small green and clear pieces of genuine Seaham sea glass hand picked from the North East beach famous for its beautiful glass. Pictured with a 5 pence piece for size comparison (very similar size to American Dime). Ideal for beach themed parties, events, weddings; craft projects such as jewellery making, mosaic, bead making, glass sculptures, beach picture /mirror frames, glass art; children's gifts as mermaid treasure (note small parts so recommend for older children or as decorative only!); or for if you just love sea glass as much as I do!
Note for wedding/party favours the amount in each bag can be reduced to increase overall quantity and reduce cost - please contact me with any requests or queries!
After having moved to the North East for University and stayed living here since, I've spent many an hour wandering along the beautiful coastline escaping the stress of daily life! Being a crafter and a hoarder I've managed to accumulate a rather large collection of beautiful sea glass pieces and I've decided its time to share some of them with you!
These pieces are 100% natural. They have been smoothed and frosted by the time they've spent in the North Sea being tumbled in the waves and on the beach. No artificial tumbling or shaping has been used. Sea glass usually starts its journey as glass used in bottles, table ware and decorations and finds its way into the sea through Victorian rubbish or factory waste and sometimes even shipwrecks! It then spends years (30,40, 100 years) being smoothed softened and frosted by the power of the salt water sea. Seaham is particularly famous for its sea glass due to the beautiful and often unusual colours and high quality glass originating from the glass factory that once sat on its coastline.
I hope you find these fascinating pieces as beautiful and interesting as I do and find a good use for them! I look forwards to hearing and seeing the amazing things you create with them in their new home :)
