Sea glass is formed from broken glass that was tossed overboard into the ocean. It originated as soda bottles, old dishes, marbles and other household items such as medicine bottles. Over time the salt in the ocean water and the motion of the waves, rounds out the rough edges of these broken pieces of glass.
Sea glass and beach glass are not the same thing
Sea glass is weathered glass found on beaches along bodies of salt water. This weathering produces a naturally frosted appearance to the glass. Beach glass comes from fresh water, has a different pH balance and a much less frosted appearance than Sea glass.
Sea glass is becoming scarce
Today, sea glass can be harder to find than it was in the past. Not only are more people collecting it, but many glass items have been replaced by plastic. Not to mention that there are many more restrictions on ocean dumping these days (which is a good thing).

Pewter desired for its versatility and durability has been used for centuries dating back to the early Egyptian & Roman civilizations. Modern day pewter is a metal alloy composed mostly of tin with added components of copper, bismuth and/or silver. It is lead free and safe for use.
Pewter does not tarnish like silver or copper but like all metals, it will slowly oxidize when exposed to air. When cleaning pewter items it is recommended to use warm soapy water and then towel dry.
These double-sided ornaments come with a red satin ribbon and are presented on a 4" x 6" card.
Made in Nova Scotia.
