you could wire wrap it into a pendant or earrings.. I don't know how big the piece(s) are, but that could be cool.

Take a mason jar or other larger jar (mayo etc) fill part way with the glass then put in a smaller glass votive (pickle jar, baby food jar etc) & fill in the space between with more glass & or shells. Drop a candle in the inner glass...the light would look really pretty
Of fill a large jar wiht the glass & a string of white lights

Just abowl of it on a table near a window looks nice, you can also soak it in sone scented oils & it wil hold the scent for a while

You know, broken glass bottles that have been etched by the sand. It's almost like GOLD to me. I have a lot of it - I think. I have some stashed probably still at my parents house. I just went to the beach and found more. I have two ideas.

- putting it all in a vase and sticking it in my window sill  (ugh - what a wonderful idea  Roll Eyes).

- Plating it and sticking a pretty candle (that I don't have and would need to go out and buy) in the middle. But then I have this stupid cat that would tear it up and lose all my glass.  So I guess I COULD do this and keep it in my bedroom.

I don't have any extra frames to glue it to - I don't have any pictures to PUT IN the frames anyway - so that's a bit out of the question.

Does anyone have any other ideas? They're so pretty and I don't have the heart to keep them hidden.

Turn them into mobiles/windchimes or suncatchers? They sell prong pendant holders at jewelry findings store that you could glue then clamp onto the tops.

picture frames would make nice gifts. if you have loads then i suppose making gifts with it would be a good way to use it.

you could do mosaics with it.
if you have a drill with a suitable bit you could make them into beads.

if you have no pictures to put in picture frames, you could do the same thing but with mirrors.
you can often get picture frames and mirrors for cheap in pound shops, charity shops, markets etc. it'd be a good way of brightening up those frames that are just a sheet of glass clipped to a board.

you could just glue it all to a big painted board and hang it on the wall as a piece of modern art.

If I can't be my own, I'd feel better dead.

I can't remember the issue or the year, but a while back, martha stewart had a whole section on sea glass with a bunch or projects. I'll bet it's archived onher website.
