Announcement    Welcome to Aegean Sea Glass Design! I’m pleased that you decided to pay us a visit. Hopefully, you took a moment to view some of the listed items. I should first like to assure you that all of the sea glass used in the pieces is genuine sea glass. (It’s disturbing that several of the popular online jewelry shops choose to use the term “sea glass” when the material they feature in fact has nothing at all to do with real sea glass. Be aware; if they don’t state that they use only real sea glass it could easily be “manufactured”, “synthetic” or “cultured”, i.e., fake.) Our jewelry- Sea glass jewelry, Beach glass jewelry, beach stone jewelry – is designed and created by me right here on the beautiful island of Rhodes.
Perhaps you’ve noticed that very few of the pieces are similar. Creating eclectic jewelry that I find unique and personal is my prime motivation. Most item descriptions will have some reference to the Southern Aegean which remains my daily inspiration.

About AegeanSeaGlassDesign

Sales 222
On Etsy since 2018

Inspired by the insuperable beauty of the Southern Aegean I've discovered a love for creating jewelry.

After retiring from a varied career as owner of an optical establishment as well as a professor of history, I retired to Rhodes, Greece to the centuries old home of my wife's family. Not a day passes without me gazing with awe at the natural beauty of this storied island. One day while in the living room, I happened to be gazing at a bowl of sea glass collected over dozens of summer visits to our seasonal home (now our residence), it struck me that these colorful little fragments, each with its own shape and shade, must have had a long journey tumbling along the floor of the Aegean until appearing at the feet of its discoverer. I thought that these would make wonderful, unique, natural pieces of jewelry. Quickly, my tinkering around became a quite satisfying hobby. Friends commented that the few items I'd created were lovely. Of course having spent my career as an entrepreneur, these complements encouraged me to consider selling some. Before too long, my little creations began to be purchased by hundreds of people around the world. My interest in various beach findings and aesthetic tastes, skill levels and techniques have been influenced by buyers and fellow artisans.

    New Yorker retired to the island of Rhodes, Greece. I try to reflect the colors, light, and history here through my creations. Except for the finished chains and bails, etc., the components of my pieces are all from the Aegean, hand made by me.
