Sea Glass Codd Marble necklace - very C marked
Very C marked and weather worn sea glass marbles. These amazing sea glass marbles have withstood hundreds of Tides during over 100 years in the Sea - now they are very pitted, covered in C marks, have bits missing, grains of sand inside or are just really wonky ( odd shaped!) .
These sea glass marbles are a special limited edition!
Between 15-18mm diameter - you will receive a random beauty, as unique as you are...
Please note that only the marbles in my hand are on offer.
Purist sea glass marble necklace... beach marble sphere... sea glass set in silver plated bezel setting on silver plated chain in length of your choice. The marble has not been channel drilled, it is set in the silver wrapping without having been altered. Codd marbles are approx 80-100 years old.
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/England. 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.
