Sea Glass Jewelry from By The Sea uses only natural genuine sea glass to make distinctive quality jewelry for the true beach lover. We specialize in some of the rarest sea glass pieces collected from beaches around the world!
Sea glass starts its journey as broken glass discarded into the sea. Sometimes called Beach Glass, Mermaids Tears or Ocean Glass, these broken shards are tumbled by the sea, sand and time to form these colorful collectible and vanishing shore gems. The soft tactile qualities of sea glass and its origins make it an appealing jewelry choice for anyone, specially those that love the beach.
The sea glass in our jewelry is UNALTERED from the way it was found on the beach (except for pieces that have a hole for incorporating into jewelry). This means our sea glass has not been shaped, smoothed or tumbled by anything other than tides and time.

Our settings range from simple wire wraps to my signature Sea Glass Necklaces "Squiggles" and "Waves" pieces. Wire wrapping is an age old technique and lends itself well to sea glass because pieces are seldom flat. Our most popular setting, the Original Wire Bezel Setting© and Deluxe Wire Bezel encloses the sea glass without altering the sea glass piece itself.
