Seaglass, also known as "Mermaid Tears," is beautiful glass remnants (likely from bottles thrown overboard old ships) that have been tumbling around in the ocean for decades to hundreds of years. Eventually these pieces of bottles, plates, etc. wash up on shore as treasures waiting to be found. Beachglass comes in many colors and shapes, thicknesses and variations of frostedness and wear. Some colors like orange and red are very rare and highly sought by collectors!
Every piece of sea glass from Tidal Treasures is guaranteed authentic, personally found on the beach by our gallery owner Aimée. From local beaches near St. Augustine to islands throughout the world, Aimée studies tidal charts, old shipping routes, moon phases, solar flares and uses Google Earth to maximize her chances of finding the best, frostiest, and most unusual pieces of these weathered shards of history. Only the best finds become Tidal Treasures jewelry.
Each piece will have its own unique beauty and character shaped solely by the ocean - the more frost and marks the better! All of our necklace chains are high-quality, non-tangle sterling silver. Custom orders using our or your seaglass are available - just let her know what you have in mind!
