regarding my sea glass treasures. Nothing for it then, but to do a bit of surfing... definite pun intended.
Found several sites ..... beautiful pics and reams of interesting information on sea glass...or sea treasure...or beach glass... some even refer to it as sea trash .... it has soooo many names. But, trash? Hhumpf ! I think NOT. However, .... as we all know........ one man's junk is always another's treasure!! As Linda mentioned to me in her email...... "sea glass is "just" glass, like Diamonds are "just" rocks!
But, who knew this? How lovely.
End of Day glass... tossed into the ocean as slag or junk from glass factories, especially in England...
or, these ... she calls them Mermaid's Emeralds.
I pilfered some of these lovely pics from her site because I wanted to complete this entry today. I did email Linda...and am awaiting her decision. If she decides I should remove them from my blog...so be it. But, I am hopeful that she will let us keep them.
and, this..... apparently this red is becoming very rare. Invented by Anchor Hocking, using copper instead of gold, so that it was more affordable. Was used for Schlitz bottles .....
Beauties, all of them.... now I want to move to the seaside, so I can play in the sand all day, searching for "washed up" treasure.
update:: Linda emailed me bright and early this Monday morning... and says I am welcome to use the pictures of her lovely jewelery and even suggested the diamonds are just rocks angle!
