These necklace and earring set of beautifully smooth teardrops, found on Seaham beach*, UK, are set with simple sterling silver pinch bails.
Attached to sterling silver hooks, the earrings measure approx 39mm in length. The necklace measures 23mm and comes with an 18" sterling silver chain.
* World renowned amongst sea glass lovers, Seaham beach yields some of the most sought after sea glass pieces.
The Londonderry Bottleworks, which operated from the 1850s to 1921, was the largest in Britain. Producing up to 20,000 hand-blown bottles every day, they distributed their glassworks world wide. At the end of each day, waste glass was dumped into the North Sea which obviously would be frowned upon in this day and age.
However, over 100 years later, the colourful glass that can be found - beautifully smoothed and shaped by the rough North Sea - truly are gems to be treasured.
The set comes beautifully presented in an organza bag, and a pillow box.
