Opalescent sea glass jewellery set - Water drop earrings and multi pendant necklace
Opalescent sea glass jewellery set. Water drop design earrings with opalescent sea glass from Seaham and matching necklace with 5 pendants on sterling silver bails. I have chosen sea glass with a mainly triangular shape to match.
Opalescent sea glass has s subtle blue shimmer with a yellow hint - the colour of the sea glass changes with the light! It is best visible when wet or ever so slightly oiled with unscented baby oil. The sea glass is sheer and will let light through, which makes the earrings glow. These earrings are more opaque.
Earrings - sea glass is approx 1.2cm - earrings are approx 2.5cm from top to bottom of sea glass
Necklace - sea glass is approx 1.5cm each, overall length is approx 2cm (comes with an 18" sterling silver chain).
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.
