All of these glass pieces have been found by me today. The pieces of pottery are from today and from a previous beach stroll. Cobalt (blue) sea glass is quite rare here in Malahide, but pieces of pottery with cobalt decorations are quite numerous. I’ve seen a lot of new pieces of glass, though. Just have to give the water time to erode them :)
Like all genuine sea glass items, this pendant is extremely unique. I found this piece of glass on a beach in Malahide, Ireland, where I live. It is of a neutral, clear colour, with frosted surface. This time I decided to use more neutral wrapping, since not everybody likes turquoise. I used some metal beads and light brown fire polished glass beads. Available on Etsy.
I’m so happy about how they came out! I’ve certainly made a huge amount of earrings for the past few weeks (didn’t have time to list all of them on etsy, though), but this is one of the best pairs so far :) SO not fair that I look awful in yellow :( Actually I might use this pattern for other pairs, since I’ve got plenty of round shaped beads (no purple, though, it’s been …
Taking a small break from the steampunk style, I made this classic-looking and more or less symmetric pendant. It is slightly gothic/victorian looking, though. I used some Czech fire polished beads (iris neutral and blue) for decoration. The cameo cabochon is glass. Available on Etsy.
I’ve found this beautiful bottle-green piece of genuine seaglass on a beach in Malahide (Ireland), where I live. Green pieces are actually quite rare here, most of what I find is clear. I wrapped it in gunmetal toned craft wire, and added some beads to add more life to it. Available on Etsy.
This time I made a neutral toned pendant, which makes it fit into the gothic style, and left the chain out, which made it look like a more traditional cameo, just slightly steampunk modded. I used Czech fire polished beads and various watch parts. Available on Etsy.
I like creative approach to traditional subjects. Cabochons in simple settings are nice and cute, but everybody and their sister has them. I glued the cameo onto the setting and then wrapped it with wire, watch parts and beads. I like the outcome. It definitely fits into the style. Available on Etsy.
I have been quite busy for the past few days (hence no updates), but I still managed to find some time to make some jewellery. I promised myself that I will use all the wire leftovers before I start another bigger project, so I made a few pairs of earrings. They are available in my Etsy shop in the “Steampunk” section.
I live in a small town by the sea, in Ireland. I’ve always looked for interesting stuff on the beach, but I’ve never come across any pieces of glass like these. Today I came back home with a handful of treasures. I named this pendant “High tide”, because when I was looking for the glass, the tide was rising, and when I was going back home it was already at its peak. Like all sea …
I wasn’t entirely sure if this bead would make sense as a steampunk pendant, but my friend wanted something blue or teal, and I didn’t have much choice (most beads I have are in warmer colours). It turned out quite ok.
