Red amberina sea glass necklace on gold filled wire wrap, Monterey Bay

Details

This is one of the most unique and rare pieces of red sea glass I have ever found. It is made of amberina glass which was manufactured in the late 1880s to early 1900s by the New England Glass Company (see below for more details). The type of glass was used in fine decorative glass ware and vases. The unusual shades of red and orange were able to be created because a small amount of real gold was added to the glass.

I wire wrapped this piece in four different types of gold filled wire to create a design that hopefully lets the natural beauty and the flow of the sea glass shine through. It comes with an 18 inch gold filled chain.

Dimensions: 1 /2 inches long and about 2/3rds inches wide including the bail.
About Amberina
Amberina is the name given to a type of glass with gradient color that starts out red at the top of the piece and changes to amber at the bottom. Variations in hue range from lighter shades that look almost pastel pink and yellow to rich, deep tones of ruby red and amber.
A number of different companies manufactured this type of glass beginning in the late 1800s and continuing into the early 20th century.

It was actually developed by New England Glass Company, however, in 1883. “The earliest Amberina has a flint quality and an excellent resonance when tapped lightly,” according to The Collector’s Encyclopedia of American Art Glass by John A. Shuman III.
The shading in the glass was achieved by small amounts of gold being added to transparent amber glass (much in the same way cranberry glass is made). The top portions of the glass objects being crafted were then cooled and reheated to get the shadings from red to yellow. Occasionally the colors are reversed with the red at the bottom of an item, but this is not commonly found.

JEWELRY CARE
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.
