Sea glass - new Etsy listing


A new element for me in the design of earrings, necklaces and bracelets is sea glass. This pair of earrings, "Butterscotch Morning", I describe as "Soft butterscotch teardrops of translucent sea glass are accented with crisp caramel synthetic amber. These earrings are on surgical steel earwires, even the most sensitive ears should be comfortable, with copper ball and coil accents. These delicious earrings are the perfect transition piece to take your wardrobe from late summer into autumn."

"The earrings measure 2" from the top of the earwire to the bottom of the amber coin."

I'm drawn to seaglass for the romance, which ocean carried it, where it originated, the textures, smoothness and beautiful colors. I will be adding more necklaces, earrings and bracelets using seaglass in the near future to my Etsy store.

I have a bunch of lovely Scottish sea glass I purchased on Etsy...but they are not drilled. I have wirewrapped some. Do you drill them yourself?
They are a lovely shade... I only have blues, greens and white. Very eye catching.
Best,

The blog looks great, and so does the jewelry. I love sea glass, I love the delicate frosted look to it.

Finding sea glass or any glass on our beaches in Manitoba is very difficult.

It must be so exciting when you are able to encompass sea glass in your creations.
