Red sea glass, modern day recycled glass beads, hand beaded beads and antique glass beads on on endless chain. 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 the sea glass while wandering the beaches of Rincon, Puerto Rico and it was worn smooth only by warm tropical surf. I made the tube beads by hand with glass seed beads and ultra strong beading cord. I hand pieced this necklace together 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. This necklace is wonderfully maintenance free. The craftsmanship ensures that this necklace is heirloom quality and with proper care it will last for generations. The sea glass ranges in size from 10mm L to 12mm L. The round beads are 10mm and the other round beads are 10mm and the tube beads are 18mm L 6mm W. Necklace length is 26". This necklace is claspless and easily slips over your head.

Why Is This Necklace 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

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.

About The Beads

The round red beads are modern day and were made in Ghana with recycled glass. They are made with glass bottles and other discarded glass items that are worked into a powder which is then placed into molds. The beads are fired in a kiln which is made out of termite mound clay that is fueled with crushed palm kernels.

I hand beaded the tube beads with glass seed beads and ultra strong beading cord using beading techniques that create a strong structure. The small glass seed beads are very high quality Delica seed beads from Japan, they are undyed and will never fade or lose their colors.

The red and white beads are glass date to the early 1900s and were made in Venice for the African trade. For thousands of years beads and natural found objects such as seashells have been used for currency all over the world. Although these beads are fairly young as trade beads go they show signs of wear, just like our modern day currency, from years of being handled. Just like our paper money and coins there is no telling how many hands they have passed through. Old trade beads are highly collectible just like sea glass! I acquire my old trade beads from some of the worlds leading bead researchers.
