Chesapeake Bay Sea Glass


The sea glass was found by a client of mine along the Chesapeake Bay- it has a great iridescent quality to it that makes me think of carnival glass, but I'm not sure I've seen olive carnival glass before...

The rust colorations she believes to be remains of a sea urchin or other sea life... not sure about that either; another sea glass friend of mine thinks it's perhaps the remnants of a reverse painting technique....? The pendant is made from a curved piece of glass that almost certainly was a bottle neck, so the colorations we see would have been on the interior of the original bottle...

I wrapped it in 14k gf wire and chain.

Hi Lynne, thanks for your compliments- the set was actually commissioned by a client of mine, she found the glass and asked me to make something out of it.

Hey, Lex, how are you feeling? :)
