SEA GLASS and BONE
This sun purple / lavender sea glass piece was found ourselves on Aquidneck Island, Rhode Island, USA.
The lavender sea glass piece measures around 75" at the widest point x 1" Long.
There's also some fish bone beads in this necklace that were also found here on the island. We boiled and bleached them, so no worries.
This type of lavender sea glass is referred to a lot of times as "sun purple."
This glass was in production pre-1915. They had used manganese in the process of clarifying the glass. Sun exposure and oxidation turns the glass from clear to lavender and even purple at times. The more exposure, the more purple the glass.
This one is a common depth of lavender and it's still oxidizing. Not next month, but if you kept this 10 years from now you could see a difference. I would even suggest that the glass be removed and re-purposed once the costume jewelry it's within and I made it with that in mind.

Mostly the antique silver chain with ribbon, but this necklace has many pieces that make it what it is. Certainly one of the more unique pieces I have made in a while. This is costume jewelry, while made well and will last, this piece is not made to withstand showering or swimming due to the fabric and mixed use of metals, also, it's all high quality and clean jewelry grade stuff so there's nothing to worry about. :)
*This is certainly a piece you take off for the shower with fabric and bone as well as it not being sterling silver.
Length: 21" necklace with 2.5" more added by charms. Handmade front clasp.

In the case of breakage or a lost item, I would choose something as close to possible to what it is you lost or got broken and I will replace the missing item with something of similar to higher value.
Most times, I do need the broken earring to make it a match or the necklace to attach a new clasp. In this case, buyer pays all shipping and small fee for replacement of the parts not to exceed their value.
If something just up's and breaks immediately or due to no fault of your own, I am very happy to correct the situation and I will replace the missing item with something of similar to higher value. I would choose something as close to possible to what it is you lost or got broken. I would rather have my customers pay a couple of dollars to get a handmade pair of earring repaired by me than get upset. I always take care of my customers...
Trade friendly, local pickup if possible.
I am wholesale interested. Wholesale orders would have to be lost wax castings rather than OOAK sea glass creations. With that being said, I can give better pricing if you decide to buy something in a bulk or have me make something that turns out to be a large order.
