Turquoise Sparkly Fish Locket with Turquoise Sea Glass Marbke
Really gorgeous turquoise sparkly fish locket with a rare bright turquoise sea glass marble! Great gift for a beach comber, sea glass hunter and fish lover :) You can open the locket if you would like to change the marble for other treasures of similar size.
Marble 15mm diameter - comes with a silver plated necklace in 18” length. Fish is approx 2cm
Sea glass marble is from the west coast of Cumbria and approx 15mm diameter.
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.
