We have many enquiries as to how is the best way to clean sea glass and sea glass jewelry the simple answer is to wash the sea glass itself in mild warm soapy water and they dry with paper towels.
To care and clean sea glass jewelry is a matter of preservation. Keep it as dry as possible at all times. Never wear it in the sea, bath or pool and try not to let body sprays, lotions or perfumes touch it. Cosmetics can have strange effects on metal jewelry, even the smallest amount can trigger a reaction and shorten is lifespan drastically. Also don’t wear your jewelry to bed this can damage it.
When not in use store it in a clean air tight plastic bag. Should the sea glass in your piece of jewelry become dirty then if possible remove it from its setting and wash in mild soapy water making sure to thoroughly dry it before returning it to it’s setting.
To clean the silver plated metal or sterling metal we advise to rub lightly with a dry soft cloth after it has been worn.
After a period of time you may find that your sea glass in your jewelry looses its frosty look. This is due to the natural oils in your body coating the glass. To bring back the natural frosty look simply wash it with mild soapy water and return it to its setting again. If on the other hand you prefer the more transparent look of sea glass this can be enhanced by dabbing a drop or two of baby oil on the glass itself and rub it into the glass then using a paper towel rub off as much as you can. Sea glasses natural state is frosty however.
We don’t treat any of our sea glass with oils they are all hand washed and left in their natural state the way nature and the sea gave them to us.

We have flip flops for ears
Flip flops for ankles
Flip Flops for wrists

A few weeks back now we introduced some new “Beach Bum” jewelry for all you beach addicts out there. All the new pieces feature sea glass of coarse and a pretty sun shaped silver plated double sided “beach bum” charm. Check them out below.
Well what can I say. We have had a fabulous summer, the weather here could have been better as it wasn’t the warmest summer we have ever had and it was quite a windy one too which isn’t always the best condition to have when visiting the beach but it certainly didn’t stop us from getting to the beach and looking for sea glass. We were rewarded very generously as we have lots of lovely pieces including a couple of very rare pieces of black.
We also visited our favorite beach four times this year and played at being proper beach bums. No sea glass there but it was great to just sit and chill and admire the view.
We have also made countless pieces of new sea glass jewelry including many different flip flop necklaces. Below is just a small handful of them as we know how both you and I love our flip flops.
Another one of our favorite pieces this summer is a new pure silk wrap bracelet in really beautiful muted shades of aqua seas and coral. We added some sea glass and a pretty mermaid charm and pearl to compliment it.
Lots more pieces of sea glass have been added to our shop over the summer so if you haven’t had a look at our website lately then this month has got t be the time to do it as we also now have a fabulous September Summer Sale event taking place.
