|A rainbow array of sea glass.|
I mentioned recently in this post that I loved taking home bits of sea glass as free souvenirs from my small trip to Fort Bragg. Another city attraction I loved was the Sea Glass Museum which is run by Captain Cass (yes, a real captain!) and admittance is completely free and donations are much appreciated. The building is filled to the brim with display cases featuring a rainbow array of frosted sea glass, books loaded with information and photos, and gorgeous handmade jewelry. Given the chance, I might have stayed to gaze at the jewels of glass all day!
|While the beaches of Fort Bragg were being utilized as dump sites, |
they would routinely burn the beaches because the trash was not
being carried away to the ocean. This process created mottled
pieces of one of a kind fire glass as seen above!
|This aqua color reminds me of the ocean where these treasures were found.|
|Yellow is one of my favorite colors of sea glass to find along with lavender.|
|Black see glass looks a lot like stones or rocks but when held to the light you can see thru it!|
(After re-examining a piece of dark black glass I found I discovered it was actually red!)
|Soft pink shades can be difficult to find, sometimes this color can be created in clear glass when it reacts with the sunlight!|
|I would feel lucky to find a big circular piece of a blue bottle one day!|
