How are Sea Glass Beads Made?

Check out the sea glass bead process with the link "Watercolors Sea Glass" to the top right of this blog page.  We describe the process used to make our sea glass beads from blocks of glass to beautifully smooth beads.  Each bead goes through a lot of different steps and you'll be surprised at how many people actually touch each bead before it ends up on a strand!

(No, we don't dump bottles into the ocean hoping to pick them up later...)

Is this sea glass?  No, these are 50 kg blocks of raw glass material.  See how they are transformed into our best selling pebbles, tusks and freeform sea glass beads.
