While our new sea glass beads section includes organic-shaped pieces that go well with any design, we’re particularly fond of our ocean-themed beads. Sea shells and sand dollars remind us of sticking our toes in the cool sand, and their sea glass counterparts come in so many fun colors and sizes. The great thing about sea glass is its opaque look stands out perfectly against metals and white pieces. Imagine adding a sea foam sea glass bead to a pendant of white pearls. Beautiful! Our starfish necklace borrows from that idea but bunches sea foam beads around the point of an antique-silver-finish starfish component from Dorabeth Designs. It’s just the right touch of summer color that invokes a shimmering, shallow beachfront.
Whether you’re designing something ocean- and beach-themed or just looking for a few splashes of bright color to welcome in the warm weather, cultured sea glass beads fit the bill. What will you design this summer?
