For the sea glass and beach glass collector, enthusiast, artisan, and addict


Every Piece Has a Story…

Sea glass, beach glass, pottery, driftwood, and more can bring to life stories from the past. A piece of glass found on the shore could have been a bottle in someone’s hand hundreds of years ago. A pottery shard was maybe once used on a ship or boat long ago. Items discarded that wash up on the beach can often be traced to their origins many years and miles away.

In Glassing Magazine, we share everything and anything about beach glass, sea glass, and beachcombing finds, plus we showcase the jewelry, art, and decor that people create with beach finds. Through photos, stories, and more, Glassing Magazine explores the beach treasures we find on the beach.

Each issue of Glassing Magazine features how-to segments, beachcombing history, sea glass colors, personal stories, collector interviews, artisan spotlights, coastal decor, glassing destinations, products we love, favorite small businesses, and so much more! Subscriptions make a great gift for your favorite beach lover!
