Spring Break is just weeks away! If you’re lucky enough to be heading to a warmer climate for a few days, then you’re sure to be wrestling with which of your favorite pieces to pack.
In addition to shorts and sandals, straw totes and sunhats, I’ll be tossing some of my favorite new jewelry into my suitcase this break! The beachy, authentic sea glass jewelry is crafted by Washed Up Creations, a Long-Island, New York-based firm that creates extraordinarily beautiful, recycled jewelry.
The beach glass is genuine and untouched (except by the pounding waves and sand). Each piece of sea glass is a treasure that Washed Up Creations’ founder Michele Ricciardi stumbled upon as she walked the beautiful ocean beaches of Long Island, NY – from Southampton to Quogue, from Montauk to Bay Shore, these treats-for-the-eye simply washed ashore!
Washed Up Creations offers a full line of beautiful jewelry – everything from show-stopping rings, to bracelets, to ankle bracelets, and more. All beach glass glass is authentic; many pieces also incorporate unique sea shells and driftwood sourced from the Long Island shoreline. Each item is hand crafted with patience, attention to detail, and precision.
Although each piece of jewelry from Washed Up Creations tells a unique story, my personal favorites are the wire wrapped sea glass pendants. These pendants are so simple, but so stunning!
The beach glass (available in a range of lovely, muted shades) is wrapped using silver plated 20 gauge wire and adorned with a pewter charm. The chain is a simple silver plated chain link — neither too thin nor too thick – with a lobster clasp and 6mm jump ring. (If you are a Revenge fan — they remind me a bit of the oh-so-romantic piece that Jack fashioned for Amanda as a gift to wear on their wedding day.)
Best of all, these lovely pendants retail for just $14.00! To see the entire line, visit Washed Up Creations.
