"Sea glass" beads from Auntie's Beads


I received this very cool selection of "sea glass" beads from Auntie's Beads recently.   These rounds and nuggets mimic the look of authentic sea glass pretty well.  The major difference is that the sizes of the rounds are uniform, something you could never get from a walk on the beach.  The surfaces have frosted finish from an acid bath or rock tumbler, giving these beads the look that makes sea glass so coveted. 

Just wait till you see what we're going to do with them...on Tuesday!

I think they have bit of a nerve calling this sea glass. You have to dig in their website to find that it is in fact faux sea glass.

For the real stuff, come and visit Inverness beach in Cape Breton, NS and see what you can find!

Derek, I think that I was pretty clear in my post that they are made to look like sea glass and are not the real thing. I'll be up to visit soon though...get the porridge ready for me!
