Thanks to hunter Kerstin Novion for reporting #38 RB Beach Glass, the Brown Fish by Alex Danford-Rincon, was apparently already found when she followed the clues to look for it this morning. (Alex did a drive-by to confirm that, yes, it’s gone.) Hoping to still hear from the finder directly. If that is you, please let us know!

This is by no means the first RB Beach Glass found within 24 hours of posting. Some have been found in less than an hour! 

All except one, that is. Sadly, lonely #37 is still hiding and waiting, waiting, waiting for someone to find it. (As of last week it was still there.) True, it looks homely in the photo and maybe in person, too. But it has hidden treasures inside and is much more fun than it’s appearance would suggest!

If someone – anyone! — is interested in finding it but the clues didn’t help enough, please let me know. I’ll be happy to give more, uhm, detailed clues (as in, I’ll draw you a map if you need it). 

Thanks for taking part in this community adventure and happy hunting!

Please welcome RB Beach Glass’s newest contributing artist, Richmond Beach native Alex Danford-Rincon. His beautiful art is made from as-is beach glass found along the Richmond Beach shoreline. RB Beach Glass #38 is his Brown Fish and is hidden and ready for you to find. (Note that it is not in a jar but is simply hanging out by itself.) Alex plans to regularly contribute pieces for RB Beach

Glass so if you aren’t the lucky finder this time you’ll have another chance to search for one of his creations. Learn more about Alex by checking out his contributing artist bio.

As always, the art is free to whoever finds it. Happy hunting, er….fishing!

Richmond Beach native, Alex Danford-Rincon, has been fascinated by beach glass as far back as he can remember.  One of his many hobbies is to turn it into lampshades, ornaments, small windows and even jewelry.  By soldering them together using the copper foil technique, he loves combining bits of glass foundred tip on Richmond Beach into rustic pieces of art.

In this place of arresting views, Alex‘s hope is that his efforts will encourage other beach goers not to overlook the beauty close by . . . even at their own feet.

Alex uses the glass as it is when found; none of it is artificially abraded. Alex’s work is exclusively given as gifts or donated to non-profits for fundraising sales.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So everyone missed their chance to celebrate the 4th with a big jar-o-sand decorated with red, silver and blue glitter. The good news is it is still waiting so here’s and extra hint: it’s along an official pedestrian cut-through. The better news? There is a lot more to this than sand and glitter.

Turn, twist, shake, look and explore. Can you find the elephant? Red crystal? Patriotic fish? Dozens of little objects await your discovery. Test yourself against this list – #37 RB Beach Glass items – but be on the look out for other items. Not everything is listed.

Finders: Let us know it is found on this site by commenting below or on the Richmond Beach Community Association Facebook page. But don’t stop there! What was the first object you saw? What is your favorite? What was the most surprising? As alway, the art is free to whoever finds it.

Happy hunting!

Happy 4th of July! What better way to show your patriotism than displaying this big jar-o-sand decorated with red, silver and blue glitter?

There is a lot more than meets the eye in this RB Beach Glass. (It is supposed to be hidden “art” afterall!) Turn, twist, shake, look and explore. Can you find the elephant? Red crystal? Patriotic fish? Dozens of little objects await your discovery. Test yourself against this list – #37 RB Beach Glass items – but be on the look out for other items. Not everything is listed.
