Amber sea glass and hand beaded beads on an endless chain. 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 11mm L to 18mm L. The tube beads are 18mm L x 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
Common Sea Glass
Amber sea glass comes from a wide range of fascinating glass items and some pieces date back to the late 1800's. 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.
About The Beads
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.
