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.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

This is a beautiful necklace that I receive compliments on each time I wear it. The color is similar to what you are viewing on the site, but it's not shiny like you see here, it's sea glass - it's the matte finish. It's about the size of a marble, so a really nice finishing touch on any outfit.

Hi! I am a long-time UG shopper having bought many birthday and holidays gifts over the years. You are truly my go-to source for unique & meaningful gifts. This is the first negative review I have submitted. Nothing against the artist here but I do feel your catalog pic is deceiving and needs to be changed. Perhaps its the luck of the draw in the beach marbles you receive. If there is a great variety in the color and condition of the marbles sold, please state that clearly in your listing.
The two I received were dark and very murky colored; one a dull grey and the other a dark blue. Neither had any vibrance and only by shining a really bright light behind it could you see any of the typical coloration you get from attractive sea glass. The quality of the craftsmanship was excellent but your item presentation and description left me feeling a bit deceived. I was so disappointed i didn't give either one as the gift it was intended for. I chalked it up to "let the buyer beware" but wanted you to know as its the only miss I've had in an otherwise stellar record of purchases. Sorry for the bad news on this one.

    I like the uniqueness of the marble, however, it is round, as in like a marble. Just a little surprised because the online angles did not show the depth. the online picture made it look flat on one side.

    This product looked like a marble in a setting. It was not the beautiful deep blue pictured and I would not buy it again. Not for adult, maybe a young teen.

            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.
