About DownByTheSeaGlass

Sales 1,504
On Etsy since 2016

Here at Down By The Sea Glass you’ll find unique sea glass jewelry in one of a kind styles and colors!!!

My name is Carly, and I was born and raised in Maryland, USA. I have always loved the beach and jewelry. I started my first job at a jewelry counter in a local retail store and continued working in jewelry for 6 years, eventually becoming a jeweler for one of the largest jewelry companies in America. A friend of mine introduced me to the beach where she grew up, peppered with beautiful sea glass straight from the Chesapeake Bay. And I was in love. Sea glass is like a jewel, straight from the ocean itself. Once a piece of trash, and now being sought out like a treasure. Each piece carries a story of its own. Each piece of sea glass always washes up a little stronger than the storm, a little more beautiful. And now I'm pleased to bring you my little shop "Down By The Sea Glass" and share with you the jewelry that I've come to love so much!

Frequently asked questions
Why do you make jewelry using sea glass?

I've spent years of my life working in jewelry and I have developed a real love of gemstones. Sea glass is the gem of the ocean, each piece with a story to tell, some many years old. Some well travelled, others a little piece of history from a particular beach. These pieces have been broken, endured storms, and have come out of them even more beautiful. No two pieces are exactly alike, and each has it's own unique journey, just like us!

Care instructions

Sterling silver may be cleaned with a Sterling silver polishing cloth. Please avoid perfumes, lotions and all chemicals with the jewelry. All jewelry will last much longer if it is properly taken care of, so placing in a jewelry box or separating the jewelry will keep it looking newer for longer. Sea glass is still glass so it can crack, shatter or break under pressure so please be careful with your new sea "gems". Aluminum bracelets will eventually break if they are bent repeatedly to fit your wrist so I do recommend wearing it loosely to extend its wear. Showering with any jewelry on will damage it and I am not responsible for this loss.

Sizing details

18" necklaces and 7" bracelets are the "standard" sizes used in jewelry today. However, you may request a shorter or longer chain to be customized to fit you better. If you are unsure if your ring size, please purchase the printable ring sizer! I want all of my customers to love their new jewelry, so please don't hesitate to let me know if you would like a more personalized length BEFORE you place your order. Asking for a different size will result in your order being cancelled and changed into a “custom order” to accommodate any increase in price.

What if my purchase is lost in the mail?

This would be sad and I do assure you that USPS almost never will lose a package. However, if this does occur, please contact your local Post Office and ask for a satellite location of where the product was last delivered. I personally can not replace or refund jewelry that has been stolen from your mailbox, that has been marked as delivered but not arrived or if you have mistyped your address during the checkout process. If your package has not shown up please contact your local post office and work with them to resolve the issue. As a seller I will always provide a tracking number and once the package has left my hands I no longer have control over any theft or loss.

When will my order ship?

Most current orders ship within 7-10 business days. Some orders may ship sooner. Others may need to be personalized and may take the full 10 days. If you have a question regarding when your order will ship please send me a message!

Where do you find all of this sea glass?!

I do a little sea glass hunting myself but I don’t have the time to search for all of it myself:( I do have sources who I go to for the sea glass, one particular source living just minutes from Seaham beach!!! These sources help keep my little shop in business!

Custom and personalized orders

I do accept custom orders! Just message me and let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll try to make a special piece just the way you’d like! All custom orders must be paid in full before supplies are ordered. Most items ship in 7-10 business days, and this time could be extended depending on the supply company’s shipping times as well. Please know that I’ll work as hard as possible to get your custom order out at a reasonable time!

Do you accept returns, exchanges or cancellations?

I regret that I am no longer able to offer returns, but you are welcome to cancel your order up to one hour after placing it, or exchange your purchase if you contact me within 7 days and return the jewelry back to me within 14 days of receiving it.
