Half Marble necklace 2

  • £30.00


Half moon! Lovely sea foam sea glass codd marble necklace. This marble will sit flat on your chest. It is frosted on either side, and there are some amazing tumble marks on this marble that the Sea has left. This marble has very pronounced C marks - from when it was hit by rocks during its 100 years in the Sea. Truly one of a kind!

It is a miracle the marble is still in tact!

SIZE
Approx 18mm diameter - this is a half marble
Comes with a silver plated chain in 18"

Every marble is unique and if the Sea has been rough, there are lovely tumble marks on it. Occasionally a marble might have a small piece missing, but they are all frosted. This is a feature and makes your marble that bit more special.

CODD MARBLES: The Codd-neck bottle was designed and manufactured to enclose a marble and a rubber washer/gasket in the neck. The bottles are filled upside down, and pressure of the gas in the bottle forced the marble against the washer, sealing in the carbonation. The bottle was pinched into a special shape, as can be seen in the photo to the right, to provide a chamber into which the marble was pushed to open the bottle. This prevented the marble from blocking the neck as the drink was poured. Codd bottles were used until the 1920s in Scotland/UK.

Sea glass marble found on the rough coasts of Scotland. This marble has not been altered in any way, there is no glue or channel drilling involved in this piece of jewellery. It is important to me that the marble is 'untouched' just the way it was found on the beach. Marbles are round, ball shaped, spheres.
