San Vicente Creek overflowed at the Lundberg Art Studio where bins of end of day glass was stored outside. The flood waters took the glass down the hill to the Pacific Ocean to Davenport Beach, hence the name of the sea glass. Brave divers in full wetsuits hunt for the glass in dangerous conditions.
Waves that are up to 20 feet at this beach are not uncommon. Sea Glass (aka Beach Glass) is discarded glass and bottles thrown into the ocean that morphs over decades by the constant motion of the waves, sand, and rocky shores into precious little gems.
Sunlight also reacts with the glass, contributing to the etched surface, and the chemical composition of the water leaches out substances from the glass contributing to very tiny pitting or etching of the surface of the sea glass. Divided into grades from craft sea glass that is less smooth to jewelry grade that is almost without imperfections, each piece is unique to your needs. Some uses are mosaic art, jewelry and candle making, vase filler, mixed in with seashells and potpourri... The highest quality pieces have few shiny spots, are well frosted, and have smoother edges than craft-grade sea glass. All grades are available in my auctions as well as sea glass jewelry.
Coastal Inspirations is green using LED light bulbs, recycling, composting, using 100% recycled paper, reusing packing materials whenever possible, etc. If you are looking for custom orders I will do my best to accommodate your needs. None of the sea glass is no with oils and comes to you the way it was picked from the beach. Sea glass auctions will never look the same as each piece of sea glass is a unique treasure.
