Seahorse Necklace - Whimsical Lake Michigan Beach Glass Jewelry - Gift for Her - South Shore Beach Glass by Goofy Moose
Symbolically, seahorses represent patience, protection and friendliness.
These seahorses are made with copper wire and a piece of green beach glass from the southern shores of Lake Michigan.
They measure approximately 1 1/4" tall by 3/4" wide. They can be worn with either side as the front.
Your seahorse will be made to order after you order, so you will not receive the seahorse pictured.
While they were originally designed to be pendants, these could also be cute little ornaments for a beach-themed Christmas tree or your car's rear view mirror!
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
This pendant will ship with a 20" black satin cord (with 2" nickel free extension) in an organza bag or a small box, suitable for storage or gift-giving.
No metal chain is included. If you'd like to add a chain, they can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/241856022

Beach glass and sea glass are different names for the same thing - people near oceans usually refer to the glass found on the beach as sea glass, while those of us near lakes call it beach glass.
The action of the waves and the sand smooth the glass, just as sandpaper smooths the surface of wood. I only use authentic sea glass / beach glass in all of my jewelry and art.

If your jewelry or ornament darkens, and you don't like the look of patina (I love it!), it can be polished until it sparkles again.
Sometimes tarnish from metal can get onto the beach glass giving it a clouded or dirty look. A gentle scrub of a soft toothbrush with warm water and soap will clean it off.
Dry the piece (air dry or use a hairdryer) before polishing the wire.
Rub the metal surface with medium pressure. Non-scratching polishing & cleansing cloths work until the cloth is completely darkened. Polishing cloths can be found online or at local craft shops. I don't suggest using pastes or other chemicals to clean the metal of your pieces, because the chemicals could get into the tiny pores of sea glass and affect its appearance.
