Beach Glass Bottle Stopper Unique and Handmade

Combing beaches in search of sea glass, unique beach stones and sea shells is definitely a long standing tradition seen around the world and it is no different in our area.  Every day there seems to be someone walking up and down the seashore, head directed downward as a hound dog would his nose, ready to sniff out that rare, beautiful gem.  My husband and I were no exception to that rule; we took advantage of any opportunity we had to rush down to the beach and just couldn't wait for the competition to begin.  That's right, everything's a competition with my husband.  He was determined to find the rarest red, or better yet, the king of colors:  orange.  As we strutted up and down the beach, my husband way ahead as he was rushing to be the all time winner, we discovered beautiful pieces of colored gems waiting to be found, waiting to shine in all their glory in some unique piece of jewelry, or perhaps a something completely new.

Being the person that I am, I couldn't just make jewelry with my newly found treasures.  My mind kept searching for some new application, something different that hasn't been seen before, something completely different.  Seeing that I had learned the art of fusing glass, I tried to apply the technique to my beach glass, which I think worked out quite nice.  Because of the different glass pieces being incompatible to each other (something you learn when you work with glass - it's important to use glass that work together, that are compatible), it's pretty much trial and error.  Below you will see an example of one of the new applications I found for beach glass:  Beach Glass Wine Bottle Stopper, which make great hostess gifts.  These are unique gifts for him or gifts for her.  You may check out my Etsy Shop for more glass creations such as more sea glass creations, recycled wine bottle designs and more.
