From the minds that brought you Made by Meg, they present PRISM.
The demand for colorful sea glass is a frustration I have felt for years. Sourcing these rare colors is difficult, expensive and sometimes questionable when it comes to authenticity.
I considered this problem for years and tried to come up with a solution that worked from all angles. The glass had to be genuine, top quality and beautiful. When it came to the color, it had to be permanent, bright and consistent. Coming up with a way to add the color was time-consuming, frustrating at times, expensive, exciting and, in the end, rewarding.
Prism sea glass jewelry is the perfect solution to the frustration I have felt for many years. With our proprietary process, we use white, beach-found, genuine sea glass, creating colorized sea glass by putting a splash of color behind the glass. The color shows through creating an illusion of a colored piece of glass, so we are able to create pieces in almost any color imaginable. We use the same process and glass for every color, so rarity is not a factor and all colors can be priced the same. We do not want consumers to be confused and think Prism Sea Glass is a natural sea glass color.
To do everything we can to make things clear we are taking every measure possible to clarify this as colorized sea glass. We will be selling and advertising this jewelry line as “colorized, genuine sea glass”. Every piece of jewelry made in this fashion will be stamped with our Prism Sea Glass maker’s mark which has our original bird logo with an inverted triangle behind the bird.
Featuring colorized, coral, genuine sea glass, the Prism Sea Glass cuff bracelet is bold and beautiful. Set in sterling silver the soft coral color makes a statement and pairs perfectly with other vibrant colors in your wardrobe. A single piece of colorized, genuine sea glass is bezel set with a sturdy half round cuff. The opening in the cuff is one inch and is a great fit for most wrists.
About Prism Sea Glass from Made by Meg: Prism sea glass jewelry offers a spin on the traditional sea glass jewelry.

In hopes to standardize sea glass color names for collectors, jeweler Meg Carter created this guide as a reference and a beautiful work of art.
Eighty-one different sea glass colors have now been classified and officially named. This 24 x 18 inch poster is not only helpful in sorting and discussing your collection, this rainbow of color can be a statement piece in your home. Above all, it can be a conversation starter about your own sea glass collection. This is a must have for any sea glass collector or beach lover.
You can bring your sea glass home right from the beach and identify your color and rarity before you even wash it. The Carter Sea Glass Color and Rarity Guide was created as a reference and common place for color names.
Collectors, crafters and jewelers can now reference colors by all using the same names. Color rarity is indicated next to each color name on a 1 – 10 scale making collecting and identification even more exciting.
This poster is printed on 80 lb. white silk paper. This guide features 81 of the likely color shades found in one’s collection. Each piece of glass shows the official color name next to the shard along with its rarity grading from 1-10. You will also find an “*” next to some shards denoting they are ultraviolet. These particular pieces are ultraviolet, but it is possible to find these colors without the shards having an ultraviolet hue. All the pieces of sea glass showcased in this guide are actual genuine pieces of sea glass that have been unaltered from Meg Carter’s collection. None of the colors have been created by any false means. All of the colors are true to the actual shades of sea glass. The pale pieces in the top right of the guide are very close to white, but have a small hint of color, which is best viewed under natural light. When using your guide to sort your collection, always use natural light. Using artificial light while viewing the guide will cause the color hues to appear differently.
