That is very cool! I could totally see myself making regular use of something like that.

We never called it mermaid's tears, just seaglass or China, but it was definitely one of our favorite activities! The part of the island my parents live on now doesn't have any seaglass, or at least as much. When we have kids I'll have to take them to the public beach for some hunting. My Mom still has big glass vases around the house filled with seaglass, one of my favorite decorations and one I'll probably copy someday. It makes me sad to think that seaglass is becoming rarer, but I suppose it isn't good to wish for more glass bottles to be thrown into the sea :P

We used to spend hours and hours as kids looking for sea glass. On the island where we spent our summers (and still do) there was a hurricane in 1938. Several buildings were knocked into the bay. As a result there are beaches with tons of sea glass, some of it is China, which was what we prized the most as kids!

I love the jewelry! The bangle colors are so pretty. And the gold hoops seem like they'll go with anything, but still have a unique look to them.

I've had that conversation with my husband a million times. But you can replace "pretzels" with "chinese food" and "tubby" with "heartburn." Or, alternatively, "pretzels" with "dubious looking video games you buy when nothing good has come out for awhile" and "tubby" with "play a video game for ten minutes and realize it sucks."
