Lovely, I'm jealous. I used to spend my summers on Cape Cod, but now I live in Texas. How I miss Cape Cod!
I live in Mass and spend time each summer at Cape Cod and I find BARRELS of sea glass.

For Christmas, I just got a ton of plain serving trays and used some plaster of paris and I stuck the pieces on.  They look gorgeous!  I also did it with small gift boxes and made my own coasters (used some cookie cutters to shape)

Oh man...I live in Washington, right on the beach and it is always covered with beach glass.
I find strange shaped glass vases at garage sales and then fill them with sea glass and put them on my windowsill. When the sun shines through it's really beautiful.

I know this thread is really old, but I just found it and wanted to add that I used a whole bunch of sea glass for the bottom of my fish tank (instead of the usual gravel) and it's really pretty!  Easier to clean too, just soak it in some anti-algae stuff before putting it in the tank and you're good to go!  Wink

i have used sea glass to make mosaic picture frames. i glued them to wood frames and there is no need to grout because it is smooth. i also used it in my fish tank instead of gravel,

I saw an idea in a book recently that could easily be adapted using sea glass.  Use a bowl or pretty basket and put one of those touch lights in the bottom and cover with glass slubs (flat on one side marbles.) Just replace the slubs with sea glass.  Pretty and useful.
