Amber sea glass from the Caribbean suspends from hand beaded triangular elements. The beads are matte brown and shiny blue-violet and turquoise blue. We found the sea glass while wandering the beaches of Rincon, Puerto Rico and it was worn smooth only by warm tropical Caribbean surf. I hand beaded the triangular elements with glass seed beads and ultra strong beading cord using beading techniques that create a strong structure. I made these earrings with Niobium wire. Niobium is a beautiful dark grey metal. It is a very high quality metal that is hypoallergenic and it does not tarnish. It is an ideal choice for use in threaded beadwork designs because it is maintenance free. The sea glass is 3/4" L x just under 1/2" W. The beaded elements are 7/8"L x just under 3/4" W. The earrings are 2" L from the bottom of the ear wires.
You will receive the earrings pictured here.
Why Is 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.
About The Sea Glass
Common Sea Glass
Amber sea glass comes from a wide range of fascinating glass items and some pieces date back to the late 1800s. Old Clorox and Lysol bottles along with tobacco snuff and jars, medicinal bottles/jars, beer bottles and even brown mason jars have all contributed significantly to the creation of amber sea glass. In addition to the sources listed above amber sea glass from Puerto Rico comes from Puerto Rican beers like Tigre, India and Medalla and Puerto Rican malted sodas such as Malta India and Goya. Beck's beer and Heineken bottles could be a possible sources as these beers were once bottled only in amber glass on the island.
