sea glass teardrop silver pendant - blue by gaynor hebden-smith
This beautiful and unusual sea glass and silver pendant will remind you of those trips to the seaside when you spent all day combing the beach for treasures! The pendant is a blue coloured sea glass piece which has been carved into a teardrop shape and hung from a 16 inch silver chain with a lobster catch. The pendant is made from glass which has surface cracks, holes or markings which would normally mean they wouldn’t be suitable for jewellery. In the true spirit of recycling the glass has been carved and smoothed to remove the damage to the glass so all that remains is a delicate tear drop inspired by Mermaid’s tears!.
The piece has been handmade by Gaynor Hebden-Smith in her studio in Fife, Scotland. Gaynor creates contemporary jewellery combining reclaimed sea glass, sterling silver, metals, beads and crystals. Each piece of Scottish Sea Glass jewellery is completely unique, as no two pieces of sea glass are ever the same. As such the piece you receive may vary from the one shown in the image, but will be just a marvellous!
Sea glass is also known as mermaid tears or sea jewels. Gaynor collects the glass on the beaches and shores of Scotland as well as rivers, lochs and lakes. All her pieces of Scottish Sea Glass jewellery use genuine and naturally tumbled glass. The power of the sea turns the glass Gaynor uses in her jewellery from what was once ‘sea litter’ into beautifully pieces of frosted, magically shaped ‘sea treasure’.
