Sea glass bib style necklace featuring genuine striped seaglass pieces collected on my travels. Upcycled seaglass in white, teal and lilac have been carefully selected for their shape and colour and then arranged in a mosaic which is delicately electroformed in copper and then in fine silver to create a unique effect inspired by the ocean.
I design the necklace fitting the ocean tumbled pieces together and then seal with a conductive paint, such as graphite and copper. I then treat it to an overnight stay in my copper cauldron where a very small electrical current is used to conduct tiny particles of copper to the surface where I have painted. Once the copper is lovely and thick, and I can see wonderful textures form, the pendant is then treated to a bath of fine silver using a similar electroforming process. The fine silver is applied in several stages, with polishing in between to ensure it is a solid and thick covering. To contrast with the glass pieces, I have finished it with an silver oxidised patina and it is sealed using jewellers grade lacquer to maintain its wonderful lustre.
The seaglass pendant is 8.8 cm wide and 3.5 cm tall and sits on a sterling silver chain available in your choice of length. For a handy guide to choosing the right necklace length for you, please visit:
