Seaglass Art, From The Foggy Shores Of Nova Scotia!!

Living by the ocean has so many wonderful advantages. Including the incredible view!

Last year in the early months of spring, I felt a pull towards the ocean. I would get up in the morning to low tide and something inside me would say "Go To The Beach", so I listened.

Down over the bank I went. after a few short minutes, I had a small handful of my favorite thing in the world...... SEAGLASS! I started spending every free minute I had visiting the beach! Some days I was there for 4 hours, sometimes 6. There was something so peaceful about it all. I was addicted!

I brought my boyfriend, my son, my mother and even my 82 year old grandmother to enjoy a little beach time! My nanny loved it the most I think. Over the last year my collection has grown a great deal, lol

I have decided that these little treasures are just to pretty to keep to myself! So I decided to create something many will enjoy!

The Thrill Of The Hunt

There are several reasons why the hunt is so important to the sea glass seeker.
Some find their Zen moments in the solitude and beauty of the hunt.
Some collect to add color to their lives.
The history, mystery, and discovery of sea glass are also strong forces that draw collectors to shorelines around the world, looking for these pieces of physically and chemically weathered frosted glass.

So, What Is Sea Glass Exactly?

Sea glass (also referred to as Mermaid’s Tears) is broken glass that somehow found its way into the sea and later washed up on the beach after years or even decades of being tumbled, “frosted”, and pitted by the constant churning of water, salt, and sand. Collecting it is growing as a hobby. Especially for me.

At the same time, sea glass is becoming more rare, as we continue to package more goods in plastic and communities maintain efforts to keep our beaches and waterways clean. A collector rates a piece of sea glass by size, shape, relative visible wear, thickness, patterning, and color. More valuable pieces tend to be older, larger, and more rare in color.

5 Tips To Finding Beautiful Seaglass

Here Are A Few Of My Best Tips To Finding The Most Beautiful Seaglass!


1) Shore Line Matters: Find a shoreline that has rocks the size of your fist or smaller. You don't want to hurt yourself moving big rocks for nothing.

2) Low Tide Is Key: you will find the best pieces of seaglass at low tide. I usually give myself an hour or so before low tide, depending on the amount of rocks on the shore!

3) Any Weather, Doesn't Matter: Beachcombing in the rain is up to you. I personally don't mind that much. A Sunny day is the best day because it will reflect the darker and more rare colours of seaglass.

4) Tools Are Important: I never go to the beach without my trusty beach bag. It contains a claw rake, a small plastic rake, a plastic zip lock bag some, small containers to carry while I collect, lip chap, sun block and my sunglasses case! These things are all so very important to a beachcombers tool kit!

5) Choose Your Digging Location Wisely: When I get started, the first thing I look for is peaks of the groups of rocks ending towards the water. I start at the bottom in the smallest rocks and rake them away from the center, working my way to the back of the pile!

***BONUS** Focus Your Time On The Rocks That Are Close In Size To The Size Seaglass You Are Looking To Find. If you spend your time digging through sand sized rocks, you will find very small pieces of seaglass. ***
