My name is Alice and life has become one beautiful backpacking adventure since graduating college.
I have been collecting sea glass my whole entire life. It is a hobby that has been passed down through generations of my family and has been instilled in me growing up in my tiny and quaint beach hometown of Madison Connecticut.
Combining my two passions in life, sea glass and travel, I have created AB Seas, Alice Birnbaum Creations. No matter my location, I am always collecting sea glass and cleaning the beaches of its rubbish and debris. From Asia, to Australia, the US coasts to Europe, it is all one great big treasure hunt and I cannot wait to see where it takes me next! While keeping the glass separate based on its location, I then turn these priceless gems into beautiful one of a kind pendants for the amazing people I meet along the way! These pendants symbolize a love for the sea, the unique life journey we all face, as well has the ability to keep a piece of a special place close to your heart.

After receiving my dive masters in Koh Tao Thailand, I really started firsthand seeing the damages we were having on our oceans and started realizing how important it was to be an advocate for the sea. Participating in beach clean ups, eco days, and getting involved in Coral Restoration projects became my way of giving back. Gaining knowledge through my expereinces, I understood how important it was to share what I've learned with the world. My pop up shops and market events are now dedicated to starting conversations involving conservation and sustainability, while showing that our choices can make a positive difference in our world if we are educated properly!

I've always been a creative. It was always my outlet at school, for as long as I can remember. From ceramics, to painting, sewing and making jewelry, being hands on and using my imagination has always played an important part in my life.

Sea glass and Its creation greatly relates to the way we all live our one of a kind lives. The ebs and flows, the unique shape and journey of each individual pieces. Its mysterious process, and how at the right time, a sharp piece of glass is gifted to the shoreline- turning what once was an invaluable shard, into a beautiful priceless and remarkable treasure. The water and its power to do this fascinates me. The ocean and its importance to the entire world inspires me every day. Traveling the world and being able to appreciate this power and these pieces influences everything about AB Seas.

I joined College Collections to support a platform for art and artists!

My greatest achievement had been being able to give back to organizations that support our world, organizations that I have been fortunate enough to participate in, such as the Coral Gardening Foundation. Traveling while pursuing my passions and selling my jewelry has allowed me to see so many beautiful places and meet incredibly special people.

My dream is to travel across the entire world, selling my jewelry and giving back to every single foundation that touches my heart and helps to improve our world. My Vision is to educate and inspire people to be conscious of their decisions so together we can make positive influences on our planet. My next plan? Get involved in selling my jewelry at music festivals. Head to Australia, buy a van, and drive down the east coast exploring the country, collecting sea glass, cleaning the beaches, and selling my jewelry where ever life takes me!
