Create Stunning Jewelry with Sea Glass
Sea glass jewelry is an elegant and simple style that many people have come to love over the years. The smooth and colorful rock-like objects make beautiful designs in different types of jewelry, mosaics, and vases that are enjoyed by the masses. But where does the sea glass come from and how does it turn into a beautiful sea glass anklet or necklace?
Sea glass comes from glass bottles that have been broken down into little smooth shards by the ocean. Although it’s not as common, it is possible for the sea glass to have originated from a plate, windows and alcoholic bottles. Most sea glass dates back to decades ago when environmentalism wasn’t at the forefront of everyone’s mind and people would leave their trash at the beach or even bury their glass deep in the sand. Unfortunately, it still happens today with larger vessels at sea dumping glassware.
When the glass is out at sea, the glass will break down into smaller pieces and get worn down and shaped by the salt, water, sun, and sand until it gets back to shore. The most common shades of sea glass are white, clear, green, blue, brown and amber. It takes on average 20 to 30 years to form, but in some cases as little as five.
Once the sea glass is collected, it is time to make them into beautiful pieces of jewelry. We have sea glass anklet designs that are delicate and beautiful along with sea glass necklaces and earrings. Sea glass anklet designs are popular along the coasts because they reflect the simple and easy going lifestyle that most beach cities represent. Many people will add sea glass charms to their anklet like they would for a charm bracelet, but some like to keep it simple with just one piece of sea glass as part of the design.
Since every piece of sea glass is unique, you are guaranteed to have a beautiful and unique piece of jewelry to add to your collection. It’s a great way to have a little piece of the sea with you wherever you go.
