2017 looks to be a fantastic year for sea glass lovers.
From sea to shining sea, sea glass fans from the world over will celebrate their fascination with sea glass, eager to explore its mysteries and better understand its allure.
By my count, at least eighteen sea glass/ocean themed meetings are scheduled in 2017 stretching from Prince Edward Island, Canada on the East Coast, all the way west to Hawaii with many stops in between. A list of all sea glass events is below.
Each year there are more sea glass converts and more sea glass themed shows. So if sea glass is your passion, and especially if you are a sea glass “newbie,” here is your 2017 Sea Glass Festival Guide.
