Every now and again a marble found its way into the rough Seas off the British coast and were lost for almost 100 years... until they were found and made into lovely jewellery with a history!

Whitby is near Seaham where the world famous multi coloured pieces of sea glass come from. This marble was found on a sandy beach, which means that the surface is really smooth, unlike marbles that are found on rocky shores.

Seaham is on the East Coast of England, near Durham and Newcastle. During the Victorian times until 1890s fabulous art glass artisan manufacturing took place in Seaham. At the end of each day small amounts of coloured glass was melted together and given to the Sea... nowadays these end of day pieces of sea glass get washed ashore. Some pieces have shades of the same colour, others are rainbow coloured.

Marbles are round, ball shaped, spheres.
