DIY Sea Glass Art

Summer is drawing to a close, but it’s still nice enough for beach walks to comb for treasures, like sea glass! Back in the spring I met with artist Susan King of Ceilidh’s Sea Glass Creations on assignment for the summer issue of East Coast Living magazine. We talked about her love of this ‘jewel of the sea’; she’s been collecting sea glass since she was a little girl. She shared some info on sea glass and tips on collecting it. She also showed me how to create my own sea glass art.

The sea glass King uses is natural, collected mainly in Cape Breton at beaches in the summer. White, green, and brown are the most common colours. Blue, red, orange, and yellow pieces are harder to find.

Ensure whatever sea glass you collect is cooked, sea-glass-speak for rounded without sharp edges, says King.
