Description

Sea Glass: Connecting you to the land and stories from where it came, the sea glass in these earrings was unearthed from the beach in Beaumaris. Most kelly green glass was produced after the second half of the 20th century for soda and beer bottles such as 7Up, Sprite, and Heineken. The main reason for the green colour is the natural ingredients used in making glass - sand, soda ash, and lime - generally contained iron impurities. Iron added to the glass-making process produces a green colour. So, depending on the amount of iron naturally found in the sand being used, the depth of green in the bottle glass was either light or dark. You can usually determine how old your glass is by the thickness and any markings or bubbles. They measure 12mm across.
Backing: Your sea glass shards are set into fine silver, so you don't have to worry about the silver tarnishing below over time. Sterling Silver earring posts ensure you shouldn't have to worry about any metal allergies or green earlobes.

Your Own Shard of History:
Inspired by the UK's Industrial Heritage, discarded man-made materials, such as pottery shards, sea glass and iron slag re-tell the stories of past craftsmen. Unearthed by Lynn upcycles their work and intends to ground you in connection.... to a person, a place or a memory. When you purchase a piece of Unearthed, you also receive the provenance that has been uncovered.
