A gorgeous watery shade of seafoam sea glass, translucent and carrying the sea within its depths. This lovely piece has been carefully side drilled, suspended from a fine 14k gold filled trace chain where it’s free to slide along, and finished with a hand wired clasp and ring. This pendant is approx 18.5 inches in length, the sea glass piece is approx 20x11mm at widest.
Gold fill (or gold filled) refers to a process where carat gold is bonded to a base metal in a thick layer, which with care should last years. Not to be confused with the much inferior gold plated.
I never alter the shape or surface of the glass in any way; all the gems are naturally shaped by the action of the sea over many years, even decades, on all the many glass objects that find their way into the ocean, or are discarded there. I simply clean, carefully drill, and finish the gems with a light rub with some oil to bring out the translucency. All jewellery comes with a jewellery care guide, and for sterling silver pieces, an anti-tarnish strip, in a plastic or compostable bag for storage. I only reuse plastic from my suppliers – as they are phasing it out, it will disappear from my shop. Similarly, I reuse outer packaging from my suppliers as much as possible. Orders over £50 will be sent via a tracked 48 hour service, under this amount, by first class post. However, understandably there may be delays at present and I have no control over this.
