Come in Waves

Get into your element with artist Jessica Lee's handmade sterling silver toggle necklaces that feature delicate shards of sea glass that have been collected by the artist from along the surfs of Bali and California. Each teardrop-shaped pendant is handmade from vibrant glass bottles and vessels that have been swept away by the ocean, shattered, and then tumbled smooth by the friction of the surf breaking against the sand.

Based on a native American tradition, the four elements help describe a person's spirit, their basic nature and temperament. Depending on when you are born determines which element you personify or match any wearer with her self-identified element, these delicate arrangements of beach glass pieces capture the essence of the four elements: water (light blue, cobalt, and clear), air (white, grey and light blue), earth (amber, olive, and brown), and fire (grey, brown, and amber). These unique pieces can also be given as a token of your appreciation for someone's inner attributes, such as their levity regardless of tough circumstances, their down-to-earth attitude, or their ability to add a spark to any conversation. Each piece of glass is hand bezeled in sterling silver and complemented by a sterling silver chain and a t-shaped toggle, making dressing up solo a cinch.

Water: Intuitive, emotional, empathetic. Soothed by being around water.
(Birthdays: February 19-March 20; June 21-July 22; October 24-November 22)
Air: Intellectual, active, unexpected. Always changing and shifting.
(Birthdays: January 20-February 18; May 21-June 20; September 23-October 23)
Earth: Brave, loyal, practical. Personifies roots. Revitalized by nature.
(Birthdays: December 22-January 19; April 21-May 20; August 23-September 22)
Fire: Strong, creative, self-assured. Likes the air best before and after a storm.
(Birthdays: March 21-April 20; July 23-August 22; November 23-December 21)
Handmade in Bali and California. Sold individually.

Jessica Lee

Jessica Lee was living in Northern California when a friend suggested that she check out Glass Beach near Mendocino on the Pacific Coast. When she saw the beach, she was immediately inspired. Since she was already doing jewelry and stained glass, she thought it seemed like a great idea to combine the techniques.

Jessica has lived all over, from Chicago, Illinois to Eugene, Oregon and now resides in Santa Cruz, California. She'd like to do a lot more traveling as well. "The world is so big," she says, "and there is so much to see."

    I am a sea glass fan so how could I resist these items? I bought two in different colors. I have gotten many, many compliments on each of them and I really enjoy wearing them. I can't recommend them enough! Enjoy!

          I love the fact that you don't have an ugly clasp working its way around to the front all the time. Sea glass is one of my all time favorites, and this necklace is also one of my all time faves!

          I ordered this necklace for my daughter-in-law. She loves blues, the beach, and the water, and it it turns out her birth sign is water. It was a little different and I hope she likes it. I have bought a few things from Uncommongoods and have found them all to be unique and good quality.

            The necklace is very unique & lovely. The only down-side is that the charms don't hang side-by-side as shown in the illustration; they overlap. Other than this it's a very pretty necklace.

              the necklace isn't too difficult to clasp, it's actually too easy to clasp. you have to be careful that it really took since it is always so easy. i love that this goes with the rest of the sea glass collection and gives you the choice of color along the lines of choosing the color of a shirt - excellent benefit.

                      These glass charms may have all been tumbled smooth by water, but they represent all four elements! Which of Jessica Lee's latest creations do you love most?

                      crystal

                      I love sea glass & have spent hours looking for it on the beach.

                      it's not real sea glass.

                      Julia, Community Organizer

                      Hi Lindsay-- what makes you say that? Jessica Lee uses actual sea glass to make her necklaces.

                      Interesting concept but it is way too expensive and I doubt it would actually lay like that on you neck. Unless the little pieces of glass were attached to each other but that would not look good either.

                      andrea

                      Beautiful, but priced just a bit too high. Also would like chain to be at least 18 inches.

                      Beautiful. I think of the work that goes into each one, plus the unique nature of each one, and can respect the pricing. I would consider buying this if you carried it.

                      Beautiful pieces, but too pricey. Price would need to come down a bit.

                      Love them! They're perfect, though I agree that the price is higher than I would expect.

                      I like the necklace, but I wouldn't pay $100 for it.

                      The idea is cool and the colors are pretty, but I think all the bits on the charm will tangle awkwardly during wear. Also, I have seen found sea glass necklaces like this for around $30 and they were also sterling silver. The current asking price is really high.

                      These are lovely, but the price is ridiculous! I live on an island in Maine, and a local woman handcrafts sterling silver and seaglass necklaces- equally as beautiful- for half the price!

                      They are really cute, but the price is too high for what most people would pay.

                      Too expensive for what you get. Dangles appear to be very small and the length of the necklace is too short.

                      Love it -- but it's pretty expensive. Not sure I'd be willing to pay that much.

                      Thanks for all of the great questions and comments! The artist, Jessica Lee, confirms that these necklaces are made from found sea glass. She travels to various beaches (in the US and abroad) to find the most unique, colorful glass. She then smooths the glass to fit into the high-quality, sterling silver bezels.

                      Definitely not pretty enough for the cost and don't see anything particularly unique about these to make them desireable.

                      Do these in gold plated instead!

                      Nice color combinations. Are the glass pieces set so they will lay flat like that when worn?

                      Very pretty. I really like. BUT too expensive. I could not justify paying this much for these.

                      I love almost anything with sea glass and I know that I am not alone. I think these would sell.
