Looking for new summer jewelry? Shore thing! We have just the right picks for this season’s sunny weather. Sea glass is a staple component in several of our artisans’ treasures this year, such as those of Erica and Michael.
Having learned the tricks of the glassmaking trade from her skilled parents, Erica creates “sea glass” by crushing glass bottles and tumbling the pieces in a special sand and salt solution before transforming it into this unique jewelry collection. Her jewelry is the perfect accent to your favorite sun dress or breezy summer outfit.
San Francisco artisan Michael has been captivated with the glass arts since childhood, when he watched his father excel at the craft. As an adult, he trained extensively in the field, which led him to create adorable jewelry, such as this turtle necklace and matching earrings. His sweet, seaside designs will transport you to sunnier days.
