The Sea Glass and Beach Glass Magazine


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

Glassing Magazine features how-to segments, beach history, personal stories, collector interviews, artisan spotlights, coastal decor ideas, beach destinations, products we love, and much more. Subscriptions make a great gift for your favorite beach lover!
