ABOUT



Please Note: NASGA is a non-profit organization positively supporting sea glass collectors and the sea glass community with festivals, information, educational opportunities, commercial membership and more. NASGA does not police sea glass commerce or litigate sea glass design issues.

NASGA waveThe North American Sea Glass Association (NASGA) was formed by a group of professional sea glass collectors, authors, artisans, and retailers. The primary goal of NASGA is to establish a community of informed collectors and sellers of sea glass that are educated on the characteristics and significance of genuine sea glass.

NASGA is establishing guidelines to differentiate genuine from fake sea glass, and offer our commercial members and collectors educational materials via newsletters, lectures, workshops, festivals, and links to websites.

Many thanks and congratulations to all the attendees, vendors, exhibitors, volunteers and staff who contribute to the great success of our annual
North American Sea Glass Festival.

NASGA are leaders in their fields and respected members of the sea glass community: Richard LaMotte author of Pure Sea Glass, Charles Peden owner of By the Bay Treasures, internationally recognized sea glass jewelry, artists in other retail businesses, as well as experienced collectors.
