Large pieces of garnet rare red sea glass ( 1" L x 3/4" W ) from the Caribbean have been secured onto handmade Argentium silver ear wires. Red sea glass is a rare and highly coveted sea glass color. Many consider finding just one piece to be a once in a lifetime find. We found this sea glass while wandering the beaches of Rincon, Puerto Rico and it was worn smooth only by the warm tropical waters of the Caribbean. I hand formed and forged the ear wires by hand with Argentium silver wire. Argentium silver is purer than and superior to traditional sterling silver. These beautifully handmade ear wires have an ancient and classical beauty. These earrings are soulful and are very well made.
You will receive the earrings pictured here.
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 prices. I am happy to let my sea glass jewelry go for very low prices while endeavoring this transformation.
About The Sea Glass
Rare Sea Glass
Red sea glass is rare and many collectors consider finding just one piece of red sea glass to be a once in a lifetime find! Possible sources for red sea glass are old Anchor Hocking Royal Ruby glassware, old Anchor Hocking Royal Ruby Schlitz and Coors beer bottles. The Anchor Hocking Glass Corporation produced a line of red glassware called Royal Ruby from 1938 to 1967 and then again briefly in the 1970s. In the 1950s Schlitz beer asked Anchor Hocking to create a red beer bottle for them and Schlitz Beer was bottled in Anchor Hocking Royal Ruby for a short run throughout the 1950s. Avon is another possible source for red sea glass. Many vintage Avon products were bottled in red glass. Avon has also produced red glass dinnerware and decorative household items.
