All of my jewelry is handmade by me from genuine sea glass and beach stones tumbled by the sea. Did you know that It takes decades for broken glass to become sea glass? Worn by waves, recycled by the sea, sea glass is a product of both man and nature. Bottles, jars and glass carelessly discarded are smoothed by the waves and sand until it washes up on shore, waiting to be found by a lucky passerby. Every piece is unique!!
Brown sea glass may come mainly from beer, root beer and whiskey bottles. The older the glass the less common it is. Old Clorox and Lysol products came in large brown bottles. Today, many wine and American beer companies still use brown bottles to help protect the liquor inside the bottles from the sun. Something in the region of one in two pieces of sea glass will be brown.
Most clear sea glass comes from items such as soda bottles, glass food containers, liquor bottles, wine bottles, Mason and Ball canning jars as well as old milk bottles and medicine bottles. Clear sea glass looks frosty and white when dry and is often referred to as white sea glass. Roughly two out of three pieces of sea glass you find will be clear or white.
