Cornish sea glass is used in these gorgeous sea glass chip earrings. I came up with this design after  making gemstone chip earrings. I find a lot of different sizes of glass on my local beaches. Some of the the smaller pieces are very pretty and gorgeous colours. I have washed and carefully drilled these pieces. They hang on sterling silver ear hooks.

Each pair of earrings will comprise of 4 different colours. These will be amber,green,white and sea foam.

 All glass is hand picked by me from my local beaches. I wash them then carefully drill them.

I do not do anything else to the glass. It is naturally tumbled and frosted for many years in the sea. I use a tiny amount of oil to enhance the colour for photos that’s it.

Each piece is unique therefore,  no pair of earrings will be the same or even match in shape.

All earrings are sterling silver hooks.

History of sea glass

Sea glass jewellery has been popular for about 25 years, however it’s found on beaches around the world since the mid 1960s. Before that point almost every thing was kept in glass jars and bottles. People just threw it away into the sea. Then we find it all polished tumbled and frosted years later on our beaches.

How it’s made

True “sea glass” formed in the ocean takes anywhere from 50-100 years to create. Constant tumbling in the salt water create smooth edges. It comes in all sizes shapes and colours. Some rarer than others.

Common colours

White,brown,and green are fairly common and can be found on most beaches. White glass can be dated back to the late 1800s and early 1900s when clear soda bottles were in mass production. Brown and green often come from beer bottles.

Rare colours

The rarest are purple, red and opaque, or milk glass. Purple sea glass usually comes from old household items like dishes or cups. Red tends to come from lamps, stained glass, and car lights. Turquoise and blues are even rarer.

About Elles Jewellery  

Hi my name is Lynn of Elles jewellery

 Here is a little bit about how I got started in jewellery making, and holistic jewellery

 I was raised in Luton beds. I spent many hours with my grandmother who was a hat designer in the 1920s in Luton for her family’s hat factory. She was a very talented woman and did many crafts, and her her senior years won many a competition with her Easter bonnets etc. she had a lot of materials i.e. seed beads as I now know them. She gave them to me and I used to make bracelets with cotton and a a needle. This was a dream of mine to be a jewellery maker. However time goes by marriage children etc, so was shelved. 5 years ago my boyfriend gave me a jewellery making kit and from there it has become my passion and grown into a fairly successful business. I have lived in Cornwall for 34 years, and I am inspired by the crystal clear light we get here, and the array of colours that this light projects, from the beautiful clear waters with there hues of blues and greens, to the browns and golds of the moors.

 My main inspiration now comes from the sea. I collect sea glass from the beautiful beaches around me here in Cornwall.

Sea glass is the treasure of Mother Nature it is classed as rubbish on the beach, however it is far from that. You don’t need any expensive equipment or expertise.

There are rare sea glass pieces to keep your eye out for. Reds, blues , purples and marbles. As you can see I turn these treasures into gorgeous unique jewellery, no two pieces are the same.

 I also have found a love of working with copper wire. These colours are inspired by the moors that surround me also. Bare copper has a multitude of colours from really shiny to patina blues and dark copper. I use a variety of beads and sea glass in my work. Silver plated copper wire and pure copper wire can dramatically enhance the bead, sea glass or gemstone.
