We are a family who loves the Mornington Peninsula and to find sea glass! Our whole family is involved in finding the glass, creating designs and photographing it as it washes up along our beaches.
Genuine sea glass is the glass that can be found along ocean shores around the world and has been tumbled by waves for many years. Sea glass is also known as mermaid tears, beach glass, ocean glass and marine gems. No two pieces are the same, making them truly unique in nature. What is most remarkable about sea glass is that nature has found a way of recycling and refining something that had been made by us and tossed away.
We only use genuine sea glass that we have handpicked from the beaches of the Mornington Peninsula. We also enjoy exploring beaches around Australia to see what we can find. While we would like to travel abroad more often to find the glass ourselves, we do purchase sea glass from reputable collectors. Each piece of glass, whether from here or abroad, is special to the beach it washed up on and we will always tell you where your sea glass originated from.
We are deeply passionate about the Mornington Peninsula, and its mix of green hinterlands, ocean beaches, wineries, art galleries and beautiful parks and gardens. The Mornington Peninsula is nearly completely surrounded by the waters of Port Phillip Bay, Western Port and the Bass Strait. Islands, shipwrecks and marine reserves dot these stretches of water and are home to the Bottlenose Dolphin, Australian Fur seal, seahorses, sea dragons, starfish, the occasional whale, sharks and more- all marine life that has inspired our sea glass designs. We are avid supporteds of the Dolphin Research Institute and contribute to their adopt-a-dolphin program from sales of our marine life collection.
