Glass From the Past

A childhood favorite grows up into a stylish accessory in Jeanne Kollecker's beautiful sterling silver necklace. Ensconced in the sterling silver bail is a one-of-a-kind marble that was collected by the artist along the shores of Lake Erie. It is said that marbles were used to balance the weight of ships, and when the vessels dropped anchor and delivered their cargo, barrels of marbles were dumped overboard. Today, these colorful glass balls wash up on shores all over the world. Like beach glass, the constant motion of the water tumbled the marbles smooth over time, leaving the glass orbs with a delicate, frosty finish. Combining treasures of the land and lake, this lovely necklace will add a splash of color and playfulness to your ensemble. Handmade in Ohio.

Meander over to our blog to read about the mysterious origins of these marbles, and how Jeanne Kollecker finds them and makes them into one-of-a-kind pendants.

    Got one for myself, one for my mom. She collects old marbles; she wrote a book on old one room schoolhouses. She has a PhD from Hopkins and is a retired symphony violinist. She LOVED it!

      Comments about UncommonGoods Beach Glass Marble Pendant:

      Bead color was dull gray. Nothing like the colorful blues shown on the website pictures. Meh. Blah. Whatever. The piece was otherwise well-executed and delivered in a simple gift box. I bought this as a gift for my wife, whose fashion tastes are very simple and traditional. I thought the simplicity of the piece would fit her style and the bright glass would add a little pop and the unique origin would be a fun conversation starter. I will still give it to her when the time is right, but I'm less enthusiastic.

        I love these. Both of them. I read the reviews and bought two in case I didn't love the color of one I could send 1 back but I kept them both and love them. Couldn't part with either. I even considered giving one as a present but couldn't talk myself into it!!!

            When you buy something for someone who has everything, buying a gift with a story really makes things special. My Mom loved the story of how the pendant was acquired by the maker, and the beach glass marble was beautiful.

            How unique is a beach glass marble? I recently started finding them myself on a gulf coast beach. Attracted instantly when I saw it in the catalog, satisfying splurge!

            A lovely item, but when the catalog said "marble", I assumed it meant that it was marble shaped, not an actual marble. I ordered two, one is definitely a marble with a rough surface, which makes me doubt it was found naturally.

            Delivery and quality are fine.

              I gave the necklace to my mom for Mother's Day. She loved it. I wish the marble had been polished. The one in the picture is bluer than the one received.

              Unique, one of a kind piece that makes a great accessory for my wife. She won't buy jewelry for herself too often, so I am always looking for something unique, special, and out of the ordinary - this piece is it. I was reasonably priced and very good quality. I don't know about durability as I just gave it to her last week but based on this, and other purchases from UG, I think it'll be another awesome purchase from UG.
