Inspired by my seaglass stash from days spent wandering island beaches, my beach glass jewelry is just beachy. With borrowed hues and textures from ocean-tumbled glass, this jewelry is sure to transport you to the water's edge.
I have been making jewelry for many years now from glass tile beads from the Czech Republic. About an hour's drive outside of Prague is a region that is known for it's exquisitely crafted glass beads. I fell in love with these beads, and now nearly all of my jewelry is made from Czech glass beads. Read more about my trip to the Czech Republic here. I work exclusively with one bead maker over there and have the ability to customize the colors, shapes and finishes of the beads he produces for me.
I decided to make this sea glass jewelry collection when I discovered that the "sandblasted" finish in the Czech bead industry is just a quick way of making seaglass! Instead of the deep, colorful, sometimes metallic finishes I typically request on the beads, if we "sandblast" them instead, they get a rough, matte finish that looks surprisingly like beach glass.
Now I'm an island girl (I live on the island of Martha's Vineyard year round), and I must say that I'm just a beach bum at heart. So as soon as I laid eyes on these beachy looking, seaglassy beads I was inspired to create this collection.

This necklace is about 18-inches long and you can wear the clasp in the front or in the back. Put it in the front and enjoy a little pendant at the center, or for a clean classic look spin the clasp to the back and get a simple strand.
