Sea Glass Decor

In keeping with our recent trip to the Outer Banks, I’ve decided to keep things beachy keen for the week.  Let’s see how long I can keep this going!

You may recall in my chronicles of my recent trip to England that I hit the jackpot in Pool – oodles and oodles of sea glass!

Yeah, it was an interesting conversation with airline security when they pointed to the image of my x-rayed bag.  But no worries, I brought it all home in one piece.

The bumpy piece is one of my favorites.  And so are the ones that still have some of the lettering still visible too.

But now the question is, what do I do with it all?

For now I have it kept in a seeded glass vase — the bubbles in the glass remind me of the bubbles in the surf.  Do I keep it as a vase filler?  Or do I use it to craft with?

Of course I’ve already taken to Pinterest for some ideas.  (View the board I’ve started here.)

A few of my favorites include covering initials in the glass, or creating a wreath.  The pieces I found are a bit too large for jewelry, but maybe a wind chime?

What do you think?
