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.

Every Trilogy style now comes in seaglass mix in addition to my classic color palette. Just choose "Mix: Seaglass" from the color options on a product page to view or purchase any piece in this new color mix.

Often mistaken for true sea glass found on the beach, these summery glassy gems will have you turning heads year round. Everytime I wear this necklace, I get asked "Is that sea glass?".

Shown below the Trilogy 18-inch necklace in seaglass, $64:

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.

Yes, Carol, the sea glass earrings are all nickel free. All of the findings in the seaglass jewelry are sterling silver. Thanks for asking!

Two years ago during a trip to the Czech Republic I was inspired by a sparkling assortment of beads arranged in a snowflake pattern and an idea was born. What if I could repurpose some of my beads that weren’t currently in use in a jewelry...

We all had them when we were kids: either half of heart-shaped friendship necklace that we shared with a best friend or a handmade colorful string bracelet that you made amongst friends and you each wore to profess your devotion to one another.
