One of my favorite activities is beachcombing and searching for sea glass. One of my favorite things is PINK sea glass.

I also have long hair and like to try out new braids. I watched a pinterest video on plaiting with 4 strands...and it is impossible to do on myself. But I got to thinking...maybe I could try it with wire? It turned out beautifully! I braided four strands of fine 26 gauge pure copper wire and wrapped it around this perfect pale pink find. A little tweaking of the strands and it formed a very snug bezel for this jewelry-grade rather large (for pink) piece of vintage beach trash. I added the support on the back (shown) just to make it even more secure. I antiqued the wire before forming so I would not discolor the glass on accident, then sanded and tumble polished it to make it shine. I wire-wrapped the thin bail to make it more substantial and then strung it on a suede cord. The pink glass really brings out the cool pink tones in the copper.

The smallish pendant measures 1 1/8" tall by a tad over 1/2" wide and the cord can be any length you desire from 15 to 24 inches. Please let me know in the space provided at checkout or you will receive an 18" suede cord like the one shown.

This will ship in 1-5 days, depending on cord ordered and my current day job schedule. It comes in a cute gift box complete with tag.

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!
