Striking turquoise sea glass and kyanite necklace from Monterey Bay
I was lucky enough to find this gorgeous shard of turquoise to deep aqua sea glass at my favorite site in Monterey Bay. Turquoise and deep aqua sea glass is one of the rarer colors and also most sought after color. I coupled the seaglass with a gorgeous focal gemstone of aqua blue kyanite gem. I love kyanite as it has many opal like characterisitcs and you can see the natural beauty inside each stone, similat to sea glass.
About Kyanite: Kyanite is considered a strong healing crystal. Although Kyanite comes in colors other than blue, the meaning of its name comes from the Greek word which means 'blue'. This is because when Kyanite was discovered the blue colored variety of the stone was the most common. It has been found in Switzerland, Austria, Italy, Burma, Australia, Brazil, Mexico and the USA. It can have an interesting crystalline structure, and it is prone to growing in twisted shapes or other fascinating variations. The blue stones come in various shades, including the quite lovely Teal Blue stones, but this color is not common.
I then added a fresh water pearl and swarovski crystal as a final highlight. I wire wrapped each of these components to a substantial unique sterling silver style ring. This pendant comes with a thick 18 inch sterling silver snake chain (let me know if you prefer 16 inches).
- length: 2 inches
- width: about 1 inch
This comes nicely gift wrapped with a card about the sea glass ands also where my donation go to.
Note: I made a second necklace very similar to this and will fullful this order with the 2nd necklace once the first sells. The gemstone and sea glass are each unique pieces so your exact piece will have some variation but will be a similar color tone, quality and size. .It is just as beautiful and you are guaranteed to be 100% satisfied.

Monterey Bay Seaglass Jewelry is durable and wears well with good care.
As with all fine sterling silver. one needs to care for the jewelry to maintain the jewelry and to prevent tarnish, which creates dark spots on the silver. When oxygen or sulfur come in contact with silver, they chemically bond to its surface and cause the silver to appear dirty or discolored. Discoloration can also occur when chemicals such as hairspray, perfumes and body lotions are put on the jewelry or in proximity to the sterling silver,.
Fortunately, caring for sterling silver and reducing tarnish is as simple as doing the dishes. All you need is to arm yourself with a few facts about the metal and a few tips and tricks for care and cleaning.
o We recommend taking your jewelry off before showering or swimming and always before sleeping. Chains can kink and wire work can get twisted or crushed if one sleeps with jewelry. Some of my designs have fine silver wraps that are not designed to hold up if one crushes them while sleeping or showers/swims with them.
o Put on your jewelry as the last step after you have put on your lotions and sprays.
o When not using your jewelry, store in an airtight bag (such as zip lock) and in a dark and dry area. You may also want to put an anti tarnish strip inside as well.
o Try to stay on top of any tarnish vs. letting it build up so it can be easily shined.
o Gently wash your jewelry with warm water and liquid dish soap to help prevent tarnish build up on the silver and the sea glass.
o To remove tarnish, you can use gentle silver creams such as Wrights Silver Cream. It is a gentle foaming silver cleaner. Make sure you rinse your jewelry well after cleaning and blot it dry with a soft wash cloth. You can also use a silver polishing cloth such as Sunshine Polishing cloth (about $2.50) or a cloth you use with your silver dining way. You can find these at many grocery or hardware stores, on Amazon and at some craft stores.
Here are cautions on other products sometimes used.
o Silver dips such as Shine Brite will quickly remove tarnish but may damage pearls and soft gemstones so carefully follow instructions. If your jewelry contains any components that have a patina finish, silver dips will likely remove the patina.
o Polishing cloths are handy to use on simple things like jump rings and ear wires, but may be difficult to use on small silver components and can leave smudges on the sea glass and your hands (they will also remove a patina) .
Keeping your glass clean-gently wash in warm sudsy water and dry. If you desire, you can use baby or mineral oil to deepen the color of your sea glass and reduce the frostiness. This is a personal choice. If you do this rinse the glass and blot any excess oil with a soft cloth.
If you have any further questions on cleaning or care for your jewelry or need repair work please email me.
