For those of you who know me well, you know I am a huge admirer and collector of Lundberg glass. If you are not yet knowledgeable about these magnificent works of art, allow me to give you a brief history. Back in the 1970's, the two Lundberg brothers started a glass making factory in Davenport, California. Their unique method of creating glass products helped make some of the most beautiful vases, paperweights and other glass objects the USA has ever created. In fact, Lundberg glass is displayed in the Smithsonian Institute, the White House, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago among other institutions.

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 - same way end-of-day glass was created 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. 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.

As no two pieces of Santa Cruz sea glass are alike, it is impossible to find two identical pieces for earrings. However, these two come close enough to act as a pair and different enough to maintain their funky edge! The sea glass pieces have layers of opaque white with a dash of green on their bottoms. I dangled them from pretty Sterling Silver connectors and completed each one with gorgeous, all Sterling Silver ear wires with genuine pearl inlay. Each earring measures 2 1/2" by 1/3". So unique!

These earrings come beautifully-boxed with pretty ribbon.
