Growing up in a beachfront town, collecting bits of smooth, colorful glass from the shore is something I’ve enjoyed doing for almost my entire life.  But what to do with all of those gorgeous little bits once you’ve gathered them?  Over at Crafts Unleashed, Angie strung a bunch of pieces together to make a beautiful wind chime!  Not only does it sounds lovely when the breeze blows it around, it also looks phenomenal with the sun shining through it!  If you don’t have access to the beach to collect your own glass, you can also use bags of decorative glass, which you can often find alongside the river rocks and flat marbles at the dollar store.  [how to make sea glass wind chimes]
