A beautiful pendant necklace made from bright cobalt blue Scottish sea glass. The glass has been reshaped and smoothed over decades of tumbling in the Scottish waves! Blue glass is rare, particularly at this size. It was commonly used in medicine (or poison!) bottles, which were traditionally made from thinner glass than beer or wine bottles. Therefore is tended to break into smaller fragments in the sea so large pieces like this are hard to find!
The necklace has been wrapped in wire and finished with a tiny Celtic swirl. This pendant measures approximately 3cm high. It comes complete with a silver-plated 18" snake chain and gift box. (Item:1605)
The sea glass washes up on the beautiful beaches in Anstruther in the East Neuk of Fife in Scotland. Much of it dates back to the Victorian era and is known as 'mermaid tears'. When sailors were lost at sea, the mermaids would cry and their tears would wash up on the shore.
All my pendants are handmade in Cellardyke using sea glass and antique sea pottery, found washed up on the beaches in Fife. Only the most special pieces become necklaces and many have been found to date back over 100 years. Each piece is a one-off antique, all worn smooth and with their colours and patterns still vibrant, despite the rough Scottish seas! I use silver plated wire to wrap the pieces and enhance their shapes and patterns.
