Sea Style

Imagine sunlight shimmering on water, the sublime smoothness of sand under your feet, and the radiance of a clear, summer morning...Courtney Gillen seems to work these breezy elements into her handcrafted sea glass jewelry.

These elegant drop earrings are built around dual "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 gathers it. The rounded, organic shapes are framed in hand-wrought sterling silver. The reflective metal makes the translucent glass catch the light, almost glowing from within. A beautiful collaboration between human craftsmanship and forces of nature, each piece features unique variations in shape, texture, and color. Handmade in Maryland.

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.
