GENUINE Davenport Sea Glass Necklace Boho
For those of you who know me well, you know I am a huge admirer and collector of Lundberg glass. If you are not yet knowledgeable about these magnificent works of art, allow me to give you a brief history. Back in the 1970's, the two Lundberg brothers started a glass making factory in Davenport, California. Their unique method of creating glass products helped make some of the most beautiful vases, paperweights and other glass objects the USA has ever created. In fact, Lundberg glass is displayed in the Smithsonian Institute, the White House, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Art Institute of Chicago among other institutions.
***This is a unique piece and I have only one. Please order in the length chain you choose and add only one to the cart. After your purchase, it will be permanently out-of-stock :)
According to one worker I spoke to at the Lundberg Studios during a visit, decades ago, glass remnants of each day's production was dumped into the stream that ran past the studio which, in turn, made its way into the Pacific Ocean. It is called end-of-day glass - same way end-of-day glass was created in Northern England. Decades later, it is the source of the magnificent sea glass washing up on one particular beach in Davenport, California.
Now, I do not collect my own Davenport sea glass. It is not for the faint of heart. The waves are known to be fierce. It does not wash ashore often. I purchase pieces from a well-known Santa Cruz sea glass collector in my circle of colleagues. This lovely piece is one of many that I will be creating and listing in the coming months.
This Davenport sea glass gem is a gorgeous, orange/red with opaque white on its back. This is a very rare color. Nature creates the most magnificent works of art! I paired it with Swarovski crystals, ornate silver-toned beads and a gorgeous Sterling Silver shell bail - all hand wire-wrapped in high-quality Argentium Silver wire. This piece is truly one-of-a-kind. I can promise you that there will never be an exact duplicate of this piece found! The entire pendant measures 1/2" by 2". Perfect necklace for the sea glass lover looking for something completely unique!
A .925 Sterling Silver chain comes with the pendant. Please indicate the length you would like at checkout.
Like all my jewelry, this necklace comes beautifully-boxed with pretty ribbon - ready for git-giving!
