Make Your Own Sea Glass Jewelry at Delaware Seashore State Park

Saturday, January 21

Rehoboth Beach, DEOne of the most popular activities in Delaware Seashore State Park is to comb the undeveloped beaches for seashells and other signs of marine life.  Occasionally, park visitors are lucky enough to spot pieces of sea glass that have washed up in the surf.  Although sea glass can be fun to collect, deciding what to do with it next is the hard part.

Park staff will be hosting two sea glass jewelry programs on Saturday, January 21.  The first program, held at 10 a.m., will cover basic wiring wrapping skills and participants will complete their own sea glass pendant.  The second program, held at 1 p.m., will be a bit more advanced for those that are ready to attempt making earrings.  Participants are invited to bring a favorite piece of sea glass or, those who haven’t found the perfect piece yet, will be able to choose a piece of sea glass from the park’s collection.

The fee for each program is $15, which includes all materials and instruction.  The classes are suitable for ages 12 and up and those under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.  The Indian River Life-Saving Station is located in Delaware Seashore State Park, 1.5 miles north of the Indian River Inlet and 3.5 miles south of Dewey Beach.  Space and materials are limited, so registration is required by calling (302) 227-6991.  More information is available to
