Kelly green sea glass as lush and vibrant as the Caribbean during rainy season is embraced with thick gauge sterling silver wire. We found the sea glass while wandering the beaches of Rincon, Puerto Rico and it was worn smooth only by the warm tropical surf of the Caribbean. I wire wrapped this sea glass with thick gauge sterling silver wire and finished the wirework with a beautifully forged spiral. I work hardened and burnished the wire to create a beautiful and very strong wire wrapped setting. The sea glass is 7/8" L x 3/4" W. The entire pendant length is 1&1/8".
You will receive the pendant pictured here.
Why Is This Pendant 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.
Our sterling silver wheat chains work beautifully with all of our pendants.

About The Sea Glass
Common Sea Glass
Kelly green is one of the most abundant types of sea glass. It is a beautiful bright green and is also called bottle green. It reminds me of the color of banana leaves and the lush color of the Caribbean summer rainy season. In Puerto Rico kelly green sea glass comes from lemon-lime flavored sodas such as 7-UP and Sprite. Heineken, Becks Beer and Presidente beer are not strong contributors to the source. When I first moved to Puerto Rico all types of Heineken and Becks Beer were bottled in amber glass. Many years later these beers started to appear in the familiar green bottles. Heineken is now affectionately referred to as "Palmolives" try to imagine Palmolive as it is pronounced in Spanish. Presidente is a green bottle beer from the Dominican Republic and is still fairly new. Kelly green was very abundant on the island's beaches long before beer in green bottles made the scene.
