Sea glass begins as bottles and glass that get tossed on the shore, broken, and then tumbled smooth by the waves and currents. It takes many years to acquire its characteristic texture and shape and Nature acts like a big rock tumbler recycling our pollution. However, some romantics call sea glass ‘Mermaid’s Tears’, and consider it an eternal reminder of true love (there’s a tale you can read about it).
If you are someone who believes in making your surroundings more ecologically friendly and you love the sea side then this ring is definitely meant for you.
Whenever I collect sea glass, I always pick up all the pieces I can find, even if they are not suitable for jewellery, as it gives me a chance to later on put these un-needed pieces in a recycling container. Collecting sea glass can be a positive experience, combining relaxation with a bit of useful cleaning up. 🙂
BY THE WAY, if you have a piece of sea glass that holds dear memories of your childhood or maybe a lovely holiday and you wish to turn it into a wearable piece, please don’t hesitate to contact me! I have experience in making quality recycled silver settings for sea glass and I can turn this little piece of memories into an heirloom that can be shared through generations.
