  • the story

Gem of the Ocean

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.

This elegant necklace is built around a trio of translucent, sea glass "pebbles"--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, and suspended from an elegant silver chain. A beautiful collaboration of human ingenuity and forces of nature, each piece has unique variations in shape and color. Handmade in the USA.

Courtney Gillen

The first time she took a metalsmithing class, Courtney 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 if inspiration. That was over twenty years ago.

Courtney goes on sea glass collecting trips whenever possible and hand makes all of her jewelry in her studio in Maryland. The clean lines of the work set off the natural beauty of the sea glass. Each piece is unique and will vary slightly, which makes the creative process all the more satisfying. collection
