Making Sea Glass Necklaces

After finding some gorgeous pieces of sea glass at Seaham, I have wanted to make some pendants from them for a while. I finally got around to drilling some holes in some of the beautiful Seaham multis and created some pendants.

I also had a go at making a sea glass pendant with resin and some of the tiny pieces of sea glass.

After practicing drilling sea glass with some plain clear and green bits of glass, I took the plunge and drilled one of the unique multis. The first one I tried was this blue multi which drilled through quite well. I attached a pinch bail and a chain and this was the result.

I then drilled a hole in this beautiful pink multi and again added a pinch bail and a chain.

Next up was a beautiful vibrant turquoise piece of sea glass that was an interesting shape and again I drilled a hole and added a pinch bail and chain to create a bright eye catching pendant.

The last one was this huge beautiful multi. I decided not to drill this one as it was so thick and instead used this 5 prong setting to create this pendant. I also used a tiny bit of epoxy glue to stick it on the back to make sure it stayed where it was supposed to.

For this next pendant I tried something a bit different. I searched through all of the sea glass I found and chose the tiniest pieces I had. I had a variety of colours including pink, orange, red, blue and yellow. I chose a close-backed bezel and chose one with a shiny surface on the back. I added a tiny layer of clear resin to the bezel and added the pieces of tiny coloured sea glass one at a time. I wanted the pieces of sea glass to peak out above the resin to show them off even more.

I’m really glad that I have finally made some jewellery using the sea glass I found. I have made a few other things with the sea glass I found but I think these are my favourite.
