I photographed this in my backyard using an oscillating sprinkler. The slow shutter speed and back light made the sprinkler look like raindrops.
This sea glass was found on the beaches of the Outer Banks. It is just a small part of our collection started in 1990 when we moved to the Outer Banks.
Sea glass is also known as beach glass, or mermaids tears. It is simply glass that has been dropped into the ocean and the tumbling action of the waves, with salt water, rounds the corners and gives it a frosted finish. This takes approximately five to fifty years to happen.
Sea glass is becoming harder and harder to find. More containers that used to be made from glass are now being made with plastic and glass is now being recycled. The best time to find sea glass is often after a storm, when the waves have washed new treasures up on to the beach. Having the sun at a low angle with a receding tide, will help you find the glass.
Happy sea glass hunting!

It is addictive, I can no longer walk down the beach with my head up!


RE: Sea Glass Shower




Beautiful. I've been searching for 4 years and have not found a single piece.


RE: Sea Glass Shower




Found some great pieces over the past month - lots of green, brown and white and even this blue one a few days ago.

We always look for sea glass it is like a treasure hunt, we have a collection gathered from the years we spent on the beaches and from lots of trips back to visit. Also have glass from as far north as newfoundland while a vacation up there. The red is like finding a diamond. Walking the beaches is a favorite pass time of mine while the wife sits in the sun and sand you never know what you will find. Hopefully this year the ocean will give up it hidden treasure.

That's a really cool picture! You have some beautiful sea glass! I have quite a collection myself from Lake Erie. I guess it would be called "lake glass" then? lol Lake Erie is at the bottom of The Great Lakes so glass and pottery/china, etc. funnels down into our Erie from the other lakes. I always wonder where it originally came from. Lots of shipwrecks under those big lakes. I've never found any glass on OBX beaches. Maybe I'll get lucky this year.
