New Beach Glass

As we all know the big buzzword these days is "Green" & here are Beach Haus Designs we try to do our part too with recycling packaging, beads ( I LOVE anything vintage & have been collecting vintage jewelry & accessories since I was 10 years old!), chains, etc.....sometimes I get so attached to certain pieces that I really feel this need for the piece to get a home with someone who will treasure the jewelry & components in it as much as I do.

Well, one of the other things we do here and is one of our founding designs is our beautiful one of a kind, authentic Beach Glass ( course some people refer to it as Sea Glass as well but being that we are Beach Haus Designs we stick with Beach Glass, LOL).
I have not done as much of our beautiful Beach Glass lately for several reasons but I am happy to say that it is back & here are some of our authentic Lake Michigan beach glass designs......get them while you can as they are all one of a kind & when they are gone....well, you know the drill, their gone!
I love the story behind so many of the colors that you find....cobalt blue beach glass is often from old Noxema jars, Lavender used to be white but during the wars WWI & II they took out a product out of the glass that turned it white that was needed for the war effort and the new chemical over time turned white glass lavender........rare.
There are reds, browns ( old root beer & beer bottles), green (7 -up bottles) and of course white & clear ( soda bottles, etc) I have a fabulous piece of large beach glass that still have the writing on it from the soda bottle, too fun!!!We have done and are always happy to do custom work for our customers using their own beach glass that they found on a favorite vacation, etc.......contact us at customerservice@beachhausdesigns.com for more information about custom work.

Many of our Beach Haus Designs brides have used beach glass in their bridal jewelry for their beach weddings in bracelets, anklets & necklaces! What a great one of a kind gift to give to those who stand up in your wedding.

So here is to a green world!
