Handmade Beach and Sea Glass
Jewelry by SuperiorStones

This morning we're going to take a look at SuperiorStones! This handmade jewelry artisan makes beautiful sea glass jewelry. She lives near Lake Superior, and every spring the lake washes new glass in to the beach. The lake is like a giant tumbler, filled with sand and other abrasive materials ... over time, old glass bottles are broken up and transformed into lovely, frosted beach glass that is collected and made into beautiful pendants, like the one you see on the left. This artisan's Sea Glass, Pearl and Crystal Quartz Cluster Dangle Front Toggle Sterling Silver Necklace is a pretty necklace in frosted white! The pearl and the quartz crystal bead are great accents, bringing out the lovely frosted appearance of the seaglass and balancing the necklace out in a very attractive way. This piece will arrive ready to wear on a 16" silver cable chain; its a great buy at $45.00! Sea glass washes up in many different colors, and the frosted appearance gives the color an outstanding saturated appearance. Just look at this Emerald Green Sea Glass Pearl Pendant Necklace! Accented with three pretty freshwater pearls, this piece almost glows ... the color is a bright, vivid green you'll simply fall in love with on sight! This beautiful pendant will arrive on a 16" sterling silver snake chain, and is very reasonably priced at just $35.00 ... This Cobalt Blue Glacier Sea Glass Pearl Pendant Necklace is the most amazing blue color. It was made in the same style as the green one (above) with three freshwater pearl accents, and will arrive at your home ready to wear on a 16" silver snake chain. This beautiful necklace is $40.00. Another type of jewelry made from local shores, this Slate Gray Beach Stone and Black Onyx Necklace is interesting. This necklace would be good for a casual accent or for wear at the office! A bit more reserved than the beach glass, but a similar style - unusual and very unique. There are a couple of sea glass pendants made with ruby accents I want to mention. First is the pretty White Sea Glass Ruby Pendant Necklace. This is a beautiful piece of clear glass that was tumbled by nature until it became a smooth, frosted piece that seems to glow ... It was drilled to fit a bail, and three 3x2mm ruby beads were added as accents. It arrives on a 16" silver snake chain; this one of a kind necklace is bargain priced at $40.00! The second one is a subtle aqua color; this is a very hard to find seaglass color. The fabulous Aqua Sea Glass Ruby Pendant Necklace is a long piece of beach glass - 1.5" long - and has that unmistakable frosted appearance only good quality seaglass has. This pendant is also accented with three wire wrapped 3x2mm ruby beads; on a 16" snake chain, this necklace is $45.00. When you visit this shop, check out the Carved Bone and Horn jewelry category!
