You already know that I live on Lake Erie and that collecting items from the beach is a favorite pastime . I collect driftwood, rocks, beach glass, pottery chips and other treasures (See Lake Erie in my back yard).
Over the years of collecting beach glass, I have seen all shapes and sizes. Probably the most unique shape I’ve seen is a heart. As I sort through my large collection of beach glass, I’m amazed by the number of hearts that I have.
I have used them for Valentine’s Day jewelry pieces, as well in other pieces. One of my favorite pieces ever is the cobalt blue heart I found that I bezeled onto a heart-shaped back. It has been sold, but I miss it. I miss it because I know a piece of beach glass of that shape and color will never come my way again.
