Sand, starfish, shell and seaglass pendant in a tiny terrarium hand blown glass orb, perfect gift for the mermaid in us all!
“Undoubtedly, philosophers are in the right when they tell us that nothing is great or little otherwise than by comparison.” ― Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels.
This bar necklace was inspired by a recent trip to Maui, where on the beach one day I became fascinated by the idea of a tiny world, discovering it populated by the smallest of shells and tiniest sea glass pebbles. I thought it would be wonderful to capture the miniature microcosm in a glass bubble, so you could take a little of this minute universe with you wherever you went. I also wanted to add to the enchantment of this teeny beach terrarium by including a Starfish collected responsibly from the beaches of Australia.
***Every necklace I make in this style is unique and may vary slightly from the picture shown. However, it will contain all of the wonderful miniature seaside treasures listed above.***
This clear glass bead has been filled with a tiny shells from Cornwall, England, The Big Island, Hawaii and Florida, USA and some of the roundest, smoothest and smallest pieces of seaglass in seafoam white, green and aqua blue. They sit alongside a small Starfish, some pink moss (like coral) on a small base of very tiny shells collected from Sandbanks, Bournemouth.
The glass part of the ball is 2.5 cm tall x 2.5 cm wide. The silver-plated bead caps are decorated with a wave design and with the sterling silver wire wrap it is about 4.8 cm wide. The sterling silver chain sits as a horizontal bar design and is available in your preferred length.
