Huxi Island Glass

Hi Linda,

Here is a picture of what I have collected so far, with a key and a
wrist mala for a size reference. I collected the sea glass during
two strolls on a small secluded beach on Huxi Island in the Penghu
Archipelago, Taiwan.

Now, I wonder if there is any problem with mailing sea glass
internationally? I'll keep collecting on weekends and send the
best of the lot.

John, the glass you've found is gorgeous! AMAZING!!!

But it will cost you a fortune to mail it. You should just keep collecting, and put the glass in your suitcase when you go back to CO through CA.

You may decide to start your own beach glass collection. I hope not. It's not a good habit to get into. You start neglecting your work and your friends and you go out in the wind and rain without gloves on. You ruin lots of pairs of shoes and there's always a chance you'll get bitten by a dog or knocked over by a wave. But as long as you're collecting for somebody else it's usually a healthy activity.


p.s. Whatever you do, do NOT show your glass collection to Michael and Flame.
