Sea Glass, Coca-Cola & Mermaid's

This is one of the Sea Glass Treasures from this Mermaid’s stash…a remnant of a Coke Bottle face. I found it several years ago in South Bay, California. I won’t sell, give it away or make Sea Glass jewelry with it. It’s not perfect in terms of rating sea glass but it is a perfect find. It has it all…history, frostiness(some glassy spots but I like it this way), identification markers, you can see the hydration from the inside out. I haven’t traced this one yet…but I gave a similar one away that was manufactured in Oregon, was found in Hawaii, and a Hawaiian girly brought here to California. What a trek! Part of the fun of collecting Sea Glass. Sometimes it’s for making jewelry, other times it’s just plain treasure.
