Item details



Glass, Silver


Pendant height: 7/8 Inches; Pendant width: 1/2 Inches

This pendant, of sterling silver and found (by me!) beach glass is made of a beachy, naturally surf-tumbled glass chunk set in sterling silver and finished off with a simple double sterling ring bail big enough to accommodate large chains or cords up to 4.5mm. The rare color of the glass is a bright turquoise teal aqua. Not your ordinary beach glass!

My husband and I found a beach in California a few years ago that is just packed with beach glass! We now make regular trips there and have jars of the beautiful stuff, including many rare colors. We can spend all day there listening to the sounds of the sea and searching for treasure.

Did you know that I must discard a hundred or more pieces of glass on a beach before I find one that will even work for a pendant? They must be relatively flat, and uniformly-sized around the edges. Making the pendant is the easy part! It's *almost* as much fun as combing the beaches. The glass is straight from my favorite beach in Northern California. I have some tiny glass jar pendants with beach sand and tiny sea glass available in my shop as well.

The glass was very carefully set in a fine silver bezel, the simple wire bail was strategically placed and soldered, and then tumble polished to a high shine. I wrapped a thick bit of fine silver wire to chunk it up a bit. For this pendant, I can include a delicate cable chain (as shown) in sterling (of course!). The pendant is available with or without the chain, and you can select the length.

It has been tumbled shiny, but can be oxidized/antiqued upon your request. It would look great on a thick silver chain, a leather cord, or a sterling ball chain. Check the "Just Cords and Chains" secton in my main shop for some of the options I have available if you would prefer a different chain: http://www.etsy.com/shop/HillCountrySilver?section_id=7701618 Chain "E" (shown) would go particularly well...and can be any length you're comfortable with.

An occasional soak in warm soapy water (yes, except for soft/porous stones like turquoise, they are safe for showering, too!) will keep your item looking new, as will daily wear, which inhibits tarnish. For orders $25+ I also include a small polishing cloth which can be used on dry pieces until it is completely black.

For shiny jewelry, I use a silver dip product for polishing. Just dip and then rinse in water. This will not remove black lettering.

If the text lightens (common inside of bracelets), fill in the letters with a Sharpie. Best hack ever! Wipe off the excess ink while it is still wet and sand off remaining residue to make the lettering pop again. I include sanding paper in every stamped bracelet order.
Exact wrist size is important for my bracelets! A 7-inch bracelet only works on a 6.75 inch wrist if it is chain. One with 1-inch beads that is 7" long may only fit a 5" wrist. So please send your exact wrist circumference if you are ordering a bracelet and want to love it a long time!
