Sea Glass Jewelry from By The Sea uses only natural Genuine Sea Glass to make distinctive quality jewelry for the true seaglass lover. We specialize in some of the rarest pieces collected from beaches around the world!
Sea glass starts its journey as broken glass discarded into the sea. Sometimes called Beach Glass, Mermaids Tears or Ocean Glass, these broken shards are tumbled by the sea, sand and time to form these colorful collectible and vanishing shore gems. The soft tactile qualities of sea glass and its origins make it an appealing jewelry choice for anyone, specially those that love the beach.
The sea glass in our jewelry is UNALTERED from the way it was found on the beach (except for pieces that have a hole for incorporating into jewelry). This means our sea glass has not been shaped, smoothed or tumbled by anything other than tides and time. Our site also has a wealth of information on sea glass collecting, where the colors come from and what make sea glass valuable.
By The Sea Jewelry is the internet's OLDEST sea glass jewelry site with over 20 years online. Featured on National TV, Radio and in print, By The Sea Jewelry is the standard in the sea glass industry.
We offer a wide range of sea glass colors from common to ultra rare sea glass pieces in earrings, necklaces, bracelets and more.
Some of our customers visit the site each and every day to see our new wares, so you may want to bookmark our site if you like what you see. Since all the pieces are One-Of-A-Kind, we cannot reproduce a piece once it is sold (though we can create a similar one in some cases). We also photograph each and every piece so you know exactly what will arrive.
Each of our seaglass jewelry pieces comes with a certificate or Sea Glass Certification Card that tells you where the glass was collected, what the possible origin was and rates the glass using three values. We offer common affordable colors as well as true beach treasure including found beach marbles, art glass which are multi colored pieces from England. We were the first sea glass artisan in the US to incorporate these unaltered gems into our work.
By The Sea is the internet's oldest site offering sea glass jewelry and gifts with thousands of returning customers. You can see some comments in our Reviews page. All of our pieces are INDIVUDUALLY photographed and described and are Ready to Ship directly to you or a gift recipient.
I have settings ranging from simple wire wraps to my signature Sea Glass Necklaces"Squiggles" and "Waves" pieces. Wire wrapping is an age old technique and lends itself well to sea glass because pieces are seldom flat. Our most popular setting, the Original Wire Bezel Setting© (pictured right) encloses the sea glass without altering the piece itself.
