I know I talked a bit about what you could do with sea glass in my video about it. I wanted to show everyone part of my collection, however, so you all can see that I really do collect it. A lot. I think I have a problem.
Another bottle in my bathroom
Now on to the various types of sea glass. As mentioned in the video (I think), it comes in various sizes and colors and a lot of them are a bit more rare than others. The pictures aren't fantastic, but these are a few pieces from my own insane collection and some descriptions.
These are various shades of amber. Amber can be pretty common being the color of various beers and other beverages.
These are various shades of green ranging from the normal kelly green (think Heineken) to seafoam (even though it looks clear here) and various olives and leaded pieces in between.
These are really rare colors. Clockwise from top: orange/yellow, lime green (even though it looks kelly in this picture), turquoise, sage green, and seafoam.
These are all neck pieces from various colored bottles. These are prized for their unique shaped.
These are bottle bottoms. I like these because they are rarely just flat. I'm very excited about the clear piece at the bottom because it obviously comes from a square gin bottle.
These are the "rares" or really hard to find pieces. Clockwise from top: jelly bean shaped, bonfire glass, fused pieces of glass with stuff stick in between, and a complete bottle mouth.

You can find out more about sea glass in many books. Lots of people are addicts too and have written about and photographed their own collections.
