This is sea glass in a small fish bowl. A lady I worked for made this. She spends hours and hours finding this glass in Lake Michigan and other lakes she visits in her travels. This is a Christmas gift from her and I wanted to share it with you! She has many decorative bowls and figurines filled with this colored glass.
Thank You for sharing this, isn't it wonderful having a loving friend like this? I would rather have a handmade gift anytime over a purchased one. This one is lovely.
This is, indeed, a beautiful gift and such a great idea. I have put clear stones in a large vase with mini lights, but never thought of sea glass. I usually have to buy my sea glass in the craft store, but collecting it naturally is better and more meaningful.
I have made these with empty wine bottles and they are cute. Also whiskey bottles for the guys make cool gifts for them .
You must be a great friend, too for her to have made that for you. Very, very pretty!
What is sea glass? Is it smashed glass that has been tumbled by the waves till smooth and washed up on the beech? I've never heard the phrase in the uk

Yes it is glass found in lakes or rivers that over time is smoothed
out by water/waves. This glass is so beautiful in this bowl. I cant wait till spring to walk in the waters edge of Lake Michigan to
look for more. We go in about ankles deep when the the water is very calm its easy to find.. and its so fun. My friend has all colors
pinks blues navy blue. White is most common from the clear glass. Its shame that people littler the waters with glass bottles but they do.
