White Beach Glass / Sea Glass Necklace accented with Peridot Swarovski bead (August Birthstone)

 

What started as a hobby, turned into a passion and admittedly an obsession.

Beautiful White Beach Glass / Sea Glass necklace. It looks so pretty accented with a white Swarovski Pearl bead, a Sterling Silver corrugated round bead and a Genuine Swarovski Peridot round bead. This would look stunning for a wedding, or as an accent to a summer dress or better yet, what a great gift for a gal with a birthday in August. Jewellery can be worn as an expression of mood or as a compliment to your favourite outfit. (This would make a fabulous bridesmaid(s) gift – custom orders welcome).

These are beautifully displayed on a 18.5″ Sterling Silver fancy cable chain, finished of with a Sterling Silver lobster clasp and sterling silver findings. (Send me an email if you would like a different chain length).

Sea Glass / Beach glass found on the shores of Lake Erie & Lake Ontario Canada. 100 % Genuine – my husband and I spend a lot of time treasure hunting on both lakes (We have our hot spots, bays, coves & inlets).

Beach glass / Sea glass from these lakes date back to as old as the 1600’s. There were many shipwrecks in both lakes producing beautiful beach glass/ sea glass, tumbled to perfection, waiting for a lucky soul to stumble across it. We have collected so much glass and thought it would be a great idea to up-cycle/re-purpose and incorporate beautiful pieces into jewellery. We hand drill all of our own beach glass.

For me, holding a piece of beach glass is like holding a piece of vintage treasure. I’m always in awe of each pieces beauty and I always envision it’s history, what was it used for, who held onto it before me, it’s mystical.


Addie Beach Design Collection – First Design

Funny how design concepts originate and evolve.  My sister in law stopped by last week to talk about a custom order for her.

As we were going through different Beach glass beads, she asked if she could combine a few.  Absolutely!!  She wanted to see what white / aqua & Cobalt looked like together adorned with a Swarovski pearl bead.

Voila!!  The Addie Beach design collection was born.  I didn’t consider combining beads, but I now love the look and will be posting new necklaces with bead combinations as part of the Addie Beach Design Collection.

Why Addie?  Her name is Angela, but her nickname is Addie – I love it and it fits well.  Thanks Ange 🙂

It looks stunning on a really long sterling silver fancy cable chain (39″ total in length).

Love it!!

Beautiful, Classic & Simple necklace. Cobalt Blue Beach glass, accented with a genuine White Swarovski pearl bead. These are beautifully displayed on a 19.5″ Sterling Silver cable chain, finished of with a Sterling Silver lobster clasp. I love this colour, we find a lot of Cobalt blue, but it’s very hard to find Cobalt blue in Jewellery quality condition.
