What is sea glass?
Quite simply sea glass is glass that has been in the sea for a long time. It could have been a bottle, a jar, a car brake light, a vase, anything made of glass in fact. Once discarded it is then rolled and worn by the action of the sea for many years getting smoother and smoother and more rounded and more rounded. This process also gives the glass its classic "frosty" look.
All you have to do then is look for it on the beach, what a thrill to find this treasure. What once was litter is magically turned into attractive gems of the sea.
Here at Hattie's Beach Hut we scour the coast of our beautiful home of Cornwall to find the raw materials for our jewellery and art.
