Oh my. This is an absolutely beautiful glass. When I posted a photo of it in my Instagram stories yesterday I received so many comments from people – everyone loves this glass.

Sea Glass is a beautiful pale blue-green and it’s a misty opal which means it has that almost glowy translucency about it.

The glass melts smoothly and it’s actually quite soft, but not in a gloopy soupy way. No shocking or bubbling.

It didn’t like stringer being added to it – it made the stringer go all feathery and distorted – but it doesn’t matter because it’s one of those glasses that just speaks for itself.

The beads were photographed indoors in natural daylight.
