All lined up...
Since each tiny teardrop of sun-melted glass is made by hand, no two are exactly alike. I make a big batch of teardrops when it’s sunny, and later line them all up to find the closest matches for earrings.

I’m going through and listing some one of a kind, discontinued, and limited edition pieces today - I had let my shop get sadly unpopulated! Hope you like the new pieces!

About

A teenager and a giant magnifying glass capable of producing 3000 degrees F. What could go wrong?

From melting lines in beach sand the 14-year old Sundrop Jewelry inventor progressed to glass. Years later, I continue to hand-make Sundrop Jewelry, working in my backyards on sunny days by focusing sunlight to melt old liquor bottles and stained glass.

Made using a giant magnifying glass capable of producing 3000° F, Sundrop Jewelry is shaped solely by gravity, making our signature droplet shape a glittering symbol of the combined power of the Earth and Sun.

Showcasing the potential of solar energy, I look toward a future less dependent on fossil fuels.

This Etsy shop is home to my one-off, experimental, limited edition colors - often made from glass I can never get again. You can find my line up of standard colors and additional jewelry styles at my webstore: http://www.sundropjewelry.com/store/
