According to one worker I spoke to at the Lundberg Studios during a visit, decades ago, glass remnants of each day's production was dumped into the stream that ran past the studio which, in turn, made its way into the Pacific Ocean. It is called end-of-day glass like its counterpart in Northern England. Decades later, it is the source of the magnificent sea glass washing up on one particular beach in Santa Cruz, California.
Now, I do not collect my own Santa Cruz sea glass. It is not for the faint of heart. The waves are known to be fierce. It does not wash ashore often. Mostly, to find it, you need to stand in the surf and dig for it. I have heard of a collector breaking a leg doing so. I have a chronic ankle issue. As much as I am aching to get in those waters myself, I leave it to someone more capable of handling the strong surf. So, I purchase pieces from a well-known Santa Cruz sea glass hunter in my circle of colleagues. This lovely piece is one of many that I will be creating and listing in the coming months.
This Santa Cruz sea glass gem the rarest of the rare in color - a beautiful ,opaque orange! There is a striking opaque white sliver on its side adding to the uniqueness of the gem. This piece is truly one-of-a-kind. I can promise you that there will never be an exact duplicate of this piece found! I completed the pendant will a .925 Sterling Silver coral charm and a hand wire-wrapped, genuine pearl. It measures 1" by 1 1/4". Perfect necklace for the sea glass lover looking for something completely unique!
A 20" .925 Sterling Silver chain comes with the pendant. If you prefer 18", just convo me. It also comes beautifully-boxed with pretty ribbon.
