Sea-glass, shells, sand and shingle surprises

Sea-glass, shell, sand and shingle provide fertile ground for beautiful jewellery and accessory design. That wonderful softened blue green glass that all of us have found or collected from the sea-shore is now here to wear. Sea-glass necklaces and bracelets come in a choice of two gorgeous colour shades – deep sea blue and seashore in paler green and white hues. A trio of bracelet, necklace and drop earring has the addition of half cowrie dropping beads which sets off the pretty blue/green sea-glass. Cowrie shells, once used for trading in exotic Pacific Islands and the ‘South Seas’, though no longer currency, are still quite irresistible. The natural curves and creamy shine of a cowrie make a perfect bead. Check out the cowrie seashore necklace in natural or black and our sweet shell flower ring in a choice of three attractive tones. These are the perfect compliment to sea-glass items.

More coastal inspired jewellery is to be found in treasures such as our genuine shell stud earrings. Wear a little piece of nature to remind you of lazy sea-fringed beach lounging and sea-side foraging. The beach scene pendant captures a little bit of realism with fantasy golden sand in a glass dome suspended on adjustable chain necklace . Full of movement it is a truly ambient accessory. In a slight shift from the shingle, shiny crustacean brooches bring a bit of bling to the sea-shore theme. A silver lobster is alive with sequins, crystals and bugle beads and who knew a crab could look so beautiful with warm orange and silver seed beads and beady black bead eyes!

Finally, the quintessential and most timeless gift to jewellery from the ocean is surely the pearl. Where would the world of jewellery be without this most popular of gems. The single pearl stud earring is a classic and no jewellery box is really complete without it. Here at Joe Cool we can offer you various sizes and pearl shades.
