Sea Change

Imagine the shimmering light of sunshine on water, the velvety smoothness of sand under your feet, or the radiant warmth of a clear, summer morning. Designer Courtney Gillen seems to work these very elements into her handcrafted jewelry.

These elegant earrings are built around "pebbles" of sea glass--discarded glass that is shattered, shaped and smoothed by the ocean before washing up on the beaches of Hawaii, where Gillen seeks it out and collects it. The rounded, organic shapes are framed in handcrafted sterling silver. The reflective silver makes the translucent glass catch the light, almost glowing from within. A beautiful collaboration of human ingenuity and forces of nature, each piece has unique variations in shape and color. Handmade in the USA.

The first time she took a metalsmithing class, Courtney Gillen knew what she would do with the rest of her life. Shortly after finishing art school and establishing her studio, a box arrived in the mail from a family member in Hawaii. It was filled with sea glass and a note which read "this might make nice jewelry." Courtney was hooked again. The mesmerizing colors and shapes of the sea glass would prove to become an endless source of inspiration. That was over twenty years ago. Today, Courtney goes on sea glass collecting trips whenever possible and hand-makes all of her jewelry in her studio in Maryland. Inspired by her materials, she hopes her pieces will transport you back to a favorite beach memory—finding some sea glass, being excited by the mysterious treasure, and wondering about its age and origins.

Unique and charming earrings

These earrings are sublime; depending on the light, they either catch and hold it or they appear almost clear and translucent. The silver is just enough to frame the glass without overpowering it.
