around your neck! If you spend a day by the seaside you'll notice the water changes as the sun moves across the skies. Every ocean has different shades of blues and greens and I've brought as many shades into play here as I could.
Each of the 5 ocean beads measures approximately 15mm x 15 mm and they alternate with sterling silver balls. The necklace closes with a sterling silver lobster claw anywhere on the sterling silver chain. The maximum length of this necklace is 20".
Each bead is individually made by me! There is no paint on any of my beads, just glass upon glass upon glass. Each bead is 4 - 8 layers of glass. Around layer 3 I roll the bead in fine silver leaf, then encase it in more glass. When the bead is large I mash it flat so that the silver disperses. This is what gives my beads the shimmering transparency reminiscent of the ocean in sunshine.
Please remember the jewelry looks larger than life in the pictures which is why it is important to check the size. I have tried to capture the colours as accurately as possible but many monitors vary.
