Sea Glass: The Ultimate Survivor
Did you know sea glass is literally shaped by the sea? Naturally produced sea glass (like the kind in this collection) was once simply broken glass, often from discarded bottles, shipwrecks and other manmade debris.
But as ocean lovers know, the sea has a way of transforming all who enter it. After decades of nonstop tumbling in the waves, those broken shards of glass emerge as the smooth, luminous seaglass you see today. This physical and chemical weathering process can take up to 50 years to acquire its characteristic texture and shape.
And so, it is our belief that sea glass is the ultimate survivor. Every stone is transformed from trash to treasure. Jagged edges soften, a new shape is revealed, a protective layer forms, a unique glow appears. During all of this, the sea glass is alone, patient, persistent. It trusts in the process. It doesn’t shatter, it doesn’t sink. It emerges, finally, glittering proudly upon the beach, until someone comes along who recognizes how special it is.
When we wear sea glass, we are wearing the ocean’s jewelry– and the transformative energy within.
Ingrid collects her sea glass by hand (sometimes with aid of her adorable daughter) on the shores surrounding the Panama Canal. Each piece of glass is uniquely forged by Mother Nature herself, so colors will vary.
Some of the rarest and most exciting sea glass colors are: Cobalt Blue, True Turquoise, Blush Pink, Lavender, and Plum Purple (oh and marbles and bottle stoppers). All of these colors, with the exception of cobalt blue, are not available on the website. These special gems are made into one of a kind jewelry each, and posted for sale weekly on all of our social media. So follow Ingrid Caduri Jewelry on Facebook and Instagram if you want to snag one of these rare beauties!
This gorgeous necklace is made with sea glass that has been hand collected from the shores surrounding the Panama Canal. Glass is fragile, so take care not to bang it as it may chip. To keep the glass on your jewelry lustrous, give it a rub with coconut oil once in a while.
Avoid wet activity while wearing your jewelry. Taking the time to remove it for swimming, ocean activities, showering, applying body cream, washing your hands, will extend the life of your gorgeous jewelry.
The metal used is 14 karat gold filled wire, and in some cases has been hammered. It may require more frequent polishing than pure 14 karat gold. Whenever you oil your glass is a good time to rub the gold with a jewelry polishing cloth.
