I’ve really been enjoying playing with beads lately! This started in the Spring when I was looking for a way to make jewelry that was colorful and fun and Spring themed, and it’s still going on! With Mother’s Day holiday I decided to use more freshwater pearls as necklacing.
These beautiful sea glass and bead bracelets are made on memory wire.
Most of these pieces went to two of my consignment shops in time for Mother’s Day and were very popular with buyers. I have had requests for custom orders of these bracelets and pendants and had a request to make matching earrings for the lavender sea glass pendant shown below!
OK you guys, it’s February 4th and the pressures on! Just kidding, but, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and your Sweetheart will be expecting something unique, thoughtful and beautiful. How about a unique one-of-a-kind gift created with sea glass? There is no gal out there who wouldn’t love a beautiful piece of sea glass jewelry.
These fabulous sea glass pendant and earring sets are created with jewelry quality sea glass and sterling silver. The beautiful hearts are pewter. They are certainly one-of-a-kind and beautiful!
The “xoxo” and “loved” charms are sterling silver, as are the necklaces. All of these pendants and earrings have been created with amazing pastel sea glass handpicked by me in California. These pendants have been best sellers for the Valentine’s Day!
Some of these designs are available locally at two artisan shops, Side Street Framers & Gift Gallery in Severna Park, Maryland and EL & Co. in Pasadena, Maryland. There are more beautiful sea glass jewelry sets, perfect for Valentine’s Day gifts available in my Etsy shop.
I’ve been creating sea glass jewelry and art for almost six years now and naturally have collected lots and lots of beads along the way. I’ve purchased beads at bead shows, at Michael’s and A.C. Moore, at bead shops in Colorado, New Hampshire, Vermont and Maryland, purchased online from a variety of sources and have purchased finished jewelry items to re-purpose the beads. I now have twenty full bead boxes full of fun and colorful beads. I decided that one of my New Year resolutions should be using beads I haven’t used in a long time.
Since the New Year I have been focusing on creating sea glass jewelry sets, so I decided to combined the two and create new sea glass pendant and earring sets along with beads I haven’t used in a long time. I’m thrilled with the results!
The beads I used were from a finished piece of jewelry. The fabulous cornflower blue sea glass is from California. The green set earrings are created with sea glass from California and the pendant is sea glass from the Bahamas that was found by a friend.
It isn’t often that I get a chance to make matching pendant and earrings sets, but I have been putting some glass aside for a while now and figured the New Year was the perfect time to start! I used some fabulous jewelry quality lavender sea glass and amazing yellow and pink pastels along with some cornflower blue rims. All of this jewelry is available in my Etsy shop!

I have recently created a “seasonal” line of sea glass jewelry using the colors of autumn. These collections of lovely autumn colors of greens, blues, browns, amber and lavender are created with sea glass from Maryland, England, California and Greece! I am selling them locally in consignment shops in Maryland!
