RAINDROPS... Elegant sterling silver earrings with top drilled Seaham opalescent colour sea glass in rain drop shape. Fantastic threader earrings with sea glass that looks like rain drops on long sterling silver chains. These earrings have box chains.
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 pieces of opalescent sea glass are more like a white yellow sea foam, with one piece having an amazing streak of opaque white. They will glow yellow in the light.

The sterling silver threaders have a curve shape at the top, so the earrings are secured.
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.
