Sea Glass Earrings and More

Sea glass earrings are perfect for days when you wish you were at the beach. Or for when you are actually at the beach. Allow me to take you on a tour of some of the sea glass earrings available in my shop.

THE SEA TURTLE RETURNS

This green-turquoise sea glass is extremely rare and fine. Sterling wire, fine silver nuggets (100% silver) and Sterling lever-backs complete the earrings. In my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/693543284/the-sea-turtles-return-earrings-rare?ref=shop_home_active_10&frs=1

BERMUDA DREAMS

The extraordinary luminous turquoise sea glass in these earrings can be seen across the room. Sterling wire, fine silver nuggets and sterling lever-backs complete these earrings, found in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/693537560/bermuda-dreams-earrings-luminous?ref=shop_home_active_12&frs=1

THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER

The super rare red sea glass in these earrings is from Vilnius, Lithuania. Vilnius is the home port of the fictional Red October, a nuclear submarine, whose captain defects and delivers the submarine to the US. These earrings are playfully named for that movie. In my Etsy Shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/693531778/the-hunt-for-red-october-earrings-deep?ref=shop_home_active_14&frs=1

BLUFF WILDERNESS CAIRN

This sea glass was collected on the coast of Nova Scotia, near the Bluff Wilderness Trail. Cairns are stacked rocks that serve as trail markers. In my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/676716798/bluff-wilderness-cairn-sea-glass?ref=shop_home_active_8&frs=1

INUIT CAIRNS

Native Peoples use stacked rocks on glaciers to mark the trails that lead them back home.

THE FLAMINGOES PLUMAGE

This super rare pink sea glass echoes the colors of a flamingoes plumage.

DREAMING OF WAIKIKI

Of course, when you go to the beach, you will wear your flip flops. Wear these earrings when you are dreaming of the beach or when you are at the beach. The sterling flip flops have extraordinary detail. In my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/697125441/dreaming-of-waikiki-sterling-silver-flip?ga_search_query=dreaming&ref=shop_items_search_2&frs=1

The Greatest Pleasure in Life

I made my first piece with one of Anne Choi’s quote beads. The quote reads, “The Greatest Pleasure in Life is Doing What People Say You Cannot Do.”

Amen!

I strung the oxidized silver bead with large gray pearls, dotted sterling bead caps and spacers and six blue flash labradorites. The clasp is sterling.

And They Call the Wind Mariah

I bought a fascinating glass sculpture from a talented glass artist in Scotland. He called it “Wind.” But what I saw was a gorgeous pregnant belly. So I called the wind Mariah.

Mother’s Day is coming up and this would be a great gift to yourself to commemorate your pregnancy, current or past. Or a great gift to another mother.

I’ll let you decide what it looks like:

MARIAH https://www.etsy.com/listing/690848953/mariah-artisan-dichroic-glass-sculpture?ref=shop_home_active_50&frs=1

This subtle glass sculpture is aqua with deeply encased lilac dichroic on the front and gold, orange and aqua dichroic on the back. The artist added a violet luster when he annealed it in the kiln.

Whatever you see here, it would be a great Mother’s Day gift for yourself or another mother. My Etsy shop is SusanDolphinDelaney: https://www.etsy.com/shop/SusanDolphinDelaney?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=690848953

Lucite: Eighty Years Later

I admit that I never thought I would make jewelry with Lucite. Then I found some 80 year old vintage Lucite beads. After so many years, they develop chatoyancy, a cat’s eye phenomena seen mostly in gems and translucency. Their reflectance can be seen across the room.

I did not shy away from pairing these amazing gems with sterling silver.

I listed them today on my Etsy shop, SusanDolphinDelaney.

Lucite is light weight and waterproof, perfect for the office and the beach.

Were There DROIDS in Ancient Crete

I was lucky enough to buy some beads from a visionary lamp work artist from Luxembourg. One pair seemed to have eyes and reminded me of DROIDS. Another seemed to have been excavated from Ancient Crete. It made me wonder if there were droids even then.

DROIDS EARRINGS LAMPWORK FROM LUXEMBOURG AND STERLING SILVERhttps://www.etsy.com/listing/682543416/droids-earrings-visionary-luxembourg?ref=shop_home_active_32&frs=1

I make Luxe Jewelry for busy women who want to put on their jewelry in the morning and forget about it until they take it off in the evening. However, I build into each piece fascination. If you are stuck in a boring meeting or on a long call, you can look at your pendant or one earring and discover all of the unique features in it.

Sunrise in Fog

When I opened the package with these two remarkable Basha Bead tubes, I immediately “saw” this necklace.

The Basha beads begin with pink and silver, move to aqua and silver and finish with shade upon shade of silver. I used a single large Swarovski pearl as the center of the design. I strung the Basha Bead tubes on tiny silver beads for flexibility and finished the necklace with plump lavender rice pearls.

My Etsy shop, SusanDolphinDelaney, is now open. I make luxe, minimalist jewelry for working women. My necklaces, pendants and earrings can be put on in the morning and forgotten until you take them off. They will never distract, although you will get lots of compliments. https://www.etsy.com/shop/SusanDolphinDelaney?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=690848953

Dawn Light on Snow

A remarkable, nature-loving metalsmith created this nest of twigs from brass. She half-silvered it, giving it the look of golden dawnlight on snow. I hung an icy blue Basha Bead from the nest.

The bead dances with every shade of silver and of pale aqua. The pendant is 2”.

This pendant necklace will be a great companion in a long meeting, as you study the half-silvering of the nest and the mystery within the Basha Bead. I hung the pendant from a 1.3 mm 18” sterling wheat chain.
