I felt like making something that was dreamy and watery and that was also playful and fun. These earrings are the result! Cobalt blue sea glass worn smooth by some of the Caribbean's most powerful surf sways beneath beautiful blue beads. We found the sea glass on the beaches of Rincon, Puerto Rico. The largest beads are 10mm and were made in Ghana with recycled glass. As a fun and unexpected accent I used 4mm size zig zag shaped glass beads. To intensify the dreaminess of the blues I topped these earrings off with 6mm Swarovski crystal beads in a color that Swarovski calls Caribbean Opal. I made the ear wires by hand with sterling silver wire and they have an ancient and classical beauty. The sea glass is 5/8 L x 1/2" W". The earrings length is 2&1/8" from he bottom of the ear wires. All sterling silver. Authentic sea glass.

Why Are These Earrings So Inexpensive?
I have been making sea glass jewelry full time for over 30 years and am experiencing a calling to explore other art forms. I am phasing out sea glass jewelry and am offering it to you for ultra low "bargain" prices. I am happy to let my sea glass jewelry go for very low prices while endeavoring this transformation.
