Blue Sea Glass wire-wrapped pendant


Genuine Dorset seaglass wrapped in oxidised copper wire and finished with a matching dark blue glass bead.

This is a smooth piece of cobalt blue glass which has been well frosted and smoothed by the action of the sea. It is finished with an upcycled glass bead and almost seems to glow when held to light. Cobalt blue is a harder to find sea glass colour which was often used for medicine and poison bottles in the past.

This piece is wrapped in aged copper wire, which is a bare copper which I have oxidised (tarnished) and then lightly polished to an antique shine. The pendant is then buffed with a protective wax to preserve the finish.

I collected this sea glass while beachcombing at Lyme Regis, UK. As well as recent flotsam, the cliffs and landslides at Lyme Regis contain deposits from between the 19th century and the 1970s, which erode down onto the beach. This means that fragments found there could be anywhere from a few months to several hundred years old!
