» Listings for July 2016

  1. Searching through my sea glass collection I found some lovely little, smooth and frosty pieces of sea glass (very hard to find) and made charms with them. Drilled twice to get the correct size hole and fitted with a sterling silver jump ring - all links on the bracelet are soldered, so no more missing charms :) The pieces of sea glass are sea mist, white and seafoam in colour and go so well with the sterling silver. Beautiful alone or stunning when stacked!

  2. Sea Glass and Faux Suede Jewellery

    I had a request from a customer for a sea glass bracelet, but as she had a metal allergy I couldn't use sterling silver for a clasp as I normally would. We got around this by making a wrap bracelet with faux suede. The piece of sea glass was drilled at either side then lovely soft faux suede was inserted through the holes, this was able to wrap around the wrist three times, tied in a knot and the ends tucked in - beautiful! My customer was absolutely delighted! This led me to making a necklace to match.  I've made lovely long necklaces 30 inches long and instead of using a sterling silver clasp, I've used wood beads in co-ordinating colours, to close the necklace and it makes it fully adjustable. One happy customer said that she can wear it at different lengths for different tops!

    The photos show some of the colours of faux suede I am using with co-ordinating beads, finished wrap bracelets (the ones in the photo have sterling silver fittings, but I can make them without for a reduced price) and a finished necklace. Hope you like them :)  I will be listing more on my website, but if you would like me to make one for you please let me know.
