This mottled piece of cobalt seaglass is really very old. It has not only been leached and frosted by the Irish Sea, but it has been gnarled into an odd, lumpy, sock shape. It even has a bump where the heel might go!

I came across it on a pebble beach near Dublin. It is a rare and interesting, vintage find, but not all that pretty for jewelry. I thought it would make a rugged-looking keychain, possibly for a man with Irish heritage or a love of the sea, or maybe even both.

I wrapped it freestyle in silver plated copper wire. The Keyring is a standard 25mm split ring that will hold many keys.

I wonder what the glass originally was? Perhaps it was a bottle that fell from a ship. It's not a very strong cobalt colour, but more like a dark cornflower blue. Perhaps it was a vase or piece of tableware from one of the town houses near the Dublin shore. This vintage seaglass keychain has a secret history all of its own.
