I collect sometimes on all fours, for up to six hours at time my own exquisite, authentic sea glass from the shores of the north east of England. Every piece is unique and depends on what the tide has brought to the shore.. I never know what I will harvest next until I am kneeling on the shores, sometimes being caught by a rough wave!

The beauty of this glass is extraordinary, heavily frosted, occasionally with a range of colours within one piece of glass. Usually the edges are rounded by the action of the sea rolling the piece across on the sea bed for over 100 years. Since each piece of sea glass has been individually moulded by nature it is therefore completely original world-wide.

Creating the jewellery is very time consuming, and different for each piece. It is so rewarding to enhance the natural beauty of the sea glass by complementing it with my own designs.
This jewellery cannot be mass produced. Each piece is unique and is a one off world wide. My aim is to produce quality not quantity.


Hugs Joan

Joan thank you so much for a beautiful and unique gift for my wife. We are both local to the north east and appreciate your work and creative skill greatly. I will certainly be watching your site on a regular basis, this sort of jewellery is so rare these days.

It takes many hours on the beach sifting through the sand left by the tide looking for unique pieces of Victorian Seaglass which has been shaped by the ebb and flow of the waves for over a 100 years. Each piece is unique, and is only found in this part of the world, which adds the extra special touch of exclusivity across the whole of our seaglass range. It can take months and even years to match up pieces, sort them, and decide what kind of jewellery I will use it for, e.g., earrings, pendants, bracelets and full sets. Once I am my studio the Artisan in me takes over and my favourite saying is "I'm a perfectionist and am not happy until my heart says YES I LOVE IT

    English seaglass is the ultimate prize for seaglass lovers, over 100 years in the making, the seaglass brings nostalgia and awe. The amount of multis able to be collected is diminishing very rapidly, making it even harder to transform these vanishing gems into jewellery.

I have my own sea glass jewellery business which I launched on October 1st 2009 so I know the type of seaglass required by the worlds top artisans and collectors.
English sea glass has a reputation for quality world-wide, which has led to it being sought after and valued by most of the world’s top sea glass designers.

The beauty of this glass is extraordinary, heavily frosted, occasionally with a range of colours within one piece of glass. Usually the edges are rounded by the action of the sea rolling the piece across on the sea bed for over 100 years. Since each piece of sea glass has been individually moulded by nature it is therefore completely original world-wide.

I collect sometimes on all fours, for up to six hours at time my own exquisite, authentic sea glass from the shores of the north east of England. Every piece is unique and depends on what the tide has brought to the shore.. I never know what I will harvest next until I am kneeling on the shores, sometimes being caught by a rough wave!

Creating the jewellery is very time consuming, and different for each piece. It is so rewarding to enhance the natural beauty of the sea glass by complementing it with my own designs.
This jewellery cannot be mass produced. Each piece is unique and is a one off world wide. My aim is to produce quality not quantity.

My passion for collecting sea glass has allowed me to accumulate a stock of sea glass shards including the increasingly rare multis. These are now for sale to hobbyists and professional jewellery makers.

All the seaglass I offer is Victorian English seaglass. To date I have sold my seaglass to collectors in 33 states of America as well other countries worldwide. I supply my jewellery and raw seaglass to shops in both the UK and USA.

I am a proud member of The Society of Northumbrian craftsmen UK, Seaglass artists & Seaglass collectors USA, and The North East seaglass society USA.

Do visit my site (which is updated regularly) to view the sea glass jewellery and bulk seaglass and I’m sure you will find a unique object you adore. I do hope you enjoy wearing the jewellery as much I have loved creating it.

Additional policies and FAQs
I collect all the seaglass I sell. I never tumble the glass , each piece comes the way the waves have placed it on the beach. sometimes I may use water to show the colours more effectively. All photos are taken in natural daylight.
All jewellery comes beautifully wrapped and presented in a gift box.
I also supply a leaflet showing the process involved from collecting off the beach to the finished work in my studio .
Sincerely
Joan Laverick : Owner and designer authenticseaglass
