Auction Item-Beautiful Wire Wrapped Sea Glass Earrings from Amanda Piver of Shiny Rocks Jewelry!

Amanda Piver's Etsy Shop, Shiny Rocks Jewelry, contains LOVELY sea glass jewelry!  In Amanda's words, "I specialize in sterling silver wire wrapped sea glass found on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. I never use store bought glass, only the genuine treasures we find on our walks along the beaches. Vintage jewelry, shiny rocks and gems also have a special place in my heart & you will find them here in my store. One of my favorite pastimes is learning about the metaphysical properties of stones and gems, so you will find a brief outline of each one I include in my designs in each items description."

Amanda has generously donated this beautiful pair of earrings made especially for our auction!  

These earrings were inspired by tropical black sand beaches and turquoise crashing waves. They feature genuine glowing white sea glass that is accented with teal and mango colored swarovski crystals that sparkle in the sun. They have been lovingly dreamed up and then wire wrapped by me in silver coated copper wire. 

They are approx 2" long and dangle from sterling silver french wire hooks. 

The glass has been drilled and then wire wrapped to make sure the glass stays safe and snug in it's wire cage.

All of my sea glass is genuine and comes from my own collection. These little gems were found along the sandy shores of the Chesapeake Bay of Maryland.

You may now begin bidding on these beauties!
