Where is my sea glass from and what is it like?

I only use sea glass with a 100% frosted surface. You will not find shiny areas, unless it is a very rare colour like turquoise or a large piece of blue for example, where pieces with less frosting get considered - this will be mentioned in the description.

Sea glass that is very rounded and has developed a good frosting is approx 80-100 years old. Shells used are also found at the beach and are sourced when they are not alive.

Most of my sea glass is collected in the Kingdom of Fife. Each piece of jewellery is made in my small studio in Cupar by myself.

Within the description I note where the sea glass is from.

How do I make my sea glass more vibrant?

If you would like the sea glass colours to be a little bit more vibrant, you can rub a tiny dash of unscented oil on the surface or even just touch the sea glass.

Wearing sea glass on your skin will add a more satin finish, as the oils from the skin get absorbed by the glass. The frosting is still there, and be brought back by gently washing the sea glass.

Care instructions

Silver plated and/or glued (i.e. nest)
The glue I use is a jewellery grade adhesive, slightly elastic and waterproof, but I do not recommend any items being worn in the shower or pool. To clean, please use jewellery silver cleaning cloths or warm water and soap. Gently wash the item in your hands. Do not use other cleaners, it may damage the glass and change the appearance of the piece.

Sterling silver
Please only use anti tarnishing cloths. Do not use dipping solutions or harsh cleaners, as this might damage the sea glass. Please keep your jewelry in air tight zip-loc bags when not wearing as this will slow the tarnishing process.
Always keep in mind that you now own a piece of sea glass jewellery, handle with care, it's glass after all!

Who will pack my TiliabytheSea order and will it be gift wrapped?

TiliabytheSea is a one woman venture. I (Nicole) will personally pack each item.

Each piece of jewellery will be wrapped in tissue paper, held inside an organza bag with a business card and then placed in a personalised envelope with a Thank you note to you or your gift recipient - then the envelope gets placed inside a bubble wrap envelope, with extra tape.

You can leave a gift message that I will hand write on the envelope.

Sizing details

Questions?

Message me with any questions you might have regarding a piece of jewellery you see. More photos, info where the sea glass is from, sizes etc. - just get in touch!

I love the earrings in the jewelry set - can I just buy the earrings?

Please message me - usually yes, if it is a Seaham set and pairing is difficult maybe not - but it's always worth asking.

Please check my last recommended posting dates for CHRISTMAS nearer the time in the shop announcement - I will post after the recommended cut off date, but can not guarantee that the parcel will reach you in time. Shipping times are approximate.
