Sea Glass Beads .. Ever wonder where those bottles of rum and gin went after they were smashed over the heads of pirates? Well, the shards were usually swept overboard by cabin boys where they would slowly make their way to the nearest shore to be pounded by the surf and sand. Decades or centuries later, people are still finding these smoothly polished shards all over the world.
After many failed attempts at finding large amounts of sea glass on the beach, we decided to manufacture our own cultured sea glass. Our sea glass beads are made to mimic the sand polishing action of hundreds of years of waves crashing ashore. Using a sped up process quite similar to the actual process, we cut and polish high density glass to a rough shape, then treat the beads with three different grits of sand-like polish in a tumbler. The entire process shortens from centuries to only two weeks. Plus you get very similar colors and shapes, something we found very hard to do when scouring miles of beach.
