Bonfire Seaglass

Have you ever heard of bonfire seaglass?  Of course, people have fires on the beach when they camp or just hang out.  Well, when the fire is smoldering, sometimes bottles or trash are thrown in, and melt somewhat.  Or, if there is a fire in a house near a river or a beach, glass can melt down.  Bonfire glass has a texture, a mystery, that appeals to some collectors.  Personally, I think it is very unique and rare.  I found a large piece when I was in Bermuda, and just finished a pendant with it, using shiny copper wire.  The seaglass actually folded over on itself, so I could thread the copper wire through the fold! Hope you like it.  I have to say, this one is mine to keep!

  1. Hi, that explains a lot about some odd pieces we have found on a beach in Newfoundland where teenagers have beach parties. We also collect sea glass and make jewellery. It is interesting to see the different kinds of glass collected around the world!

    1. Thanks for visiting. Right now I am in the midst of taking pictures of my finds from around the world. I haven't been up to Newfoundland yet.

  2. Well we are moving permanently to Newfoundland this year and hoping to open a cafe/gallery there in one of the outport villages. Maybe you could consider Newfoundland for a trip in the future!
