Introduction

Shipped and shaped along the Fundy shores of Nova Scotia , sea glass can be found littering the beaches in beauty and treasure. With each ebb and flow of the highest tides in the world bottles, china, and other bounties find themselves shattered along their seafaring journey. Some would say these pieces have stories to tell. Stories of history, of days gone by, of people and places far from this rocky coast. Michelle Fahie captures this beauty, builds these stories and shapes them daily in her sea glass and cottage decor studio located in Centerville, NS. Ocean Zn Giftshop & Home décor  sells many sea glass and sea shell creations, beach inspired themed decor, as well as picked antique finds not far from the Fundy shores of the Annapolis valley. Along with this Michelle shares her love and passion for the beauty of these bounties with locals by offering sea glass pendant workshops and birthday parties for a reasonable price and a remarkable experience. Many girls have enjoyed this opportunity building memories to wear for years to come with friends and family memories right in Michelle's quant shop.
So how did Ocean Zn come to be? A dream turned reality for a mother of three. In September 2012 Michelle walked away from the financial securities of a deducted job in Continuing Care to live something on a daily basis that has always been a huge part of her heart. Growing up in Hants County , Michelle's family spent summers along the shores of Economy at a family cottage. Collecting sea glass for years and creating as a hobby Michelle started her business from home while raising her children and working full time. Selling her wares are craft fairs and via the Internet and word of mouth. As word spread and business got even busier Michelle knew she was on to something and hasn't looked back since. Like the sea glass shaped along this shore , Michelle's story too has been molded and shaped by the sea so close to her heart.

History

Sea glass is glass tossed into the Ocean . While there, the ocean waves and currents tumble it about, breaking it into smaller pieces and smoothing its edges. Sea glass washes up on nearly every beach in the world. Essentially, sea glass is litter made of glass, which is deposited into the ocean in some manner, whether by an individual on the beach who throws a soda bottle into the sea, or by a sinking ship, or some other source.

While there is no specific history of sea glass, sea glass itself is an archaeological piece of the history of human civilization. Rich cargoes of ceramic and glass lie on the ocean's bottom, the result of shipwrecks, piracy and foul weather. The sea has also served as a dumping ground for all manner of garbage, including ceramic and glass, since the beginning of time."

Types of Sea Glass

Sea glass can have origins ranging from discarded Victorian apothecary bottles, vials and perfume bottles, to the original Clorox bleach bottles (made of glass jugs). Discarded ceramic shards are also classified as sea glass, despite it not actually being made of glass
