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!
