Teal Humpback Whale

teal sea glass humpback whale necklace in oxidized sterling silver by hkm jewelry

Beautiful Kristin met me at a sea glass show in St Michaels and loved my whale pieces, so we discussed her favorite color of sea glass and I sourced some for her to choose from for a custom humpback necklace. The teal color is particularly rare in our parts of the Atlantic, so I reached out to by friend Ky the Bored Pirate - who sails all over the Caribbean in search of sea glass treasures to get the right shape.teal and aqua sea glass from the Caribbean found by ky the bored pirate

Once the sea glass came in, I got to sketching and lastly we had to select the beads for the chain connection. She selected a green hue of fluorite along with faceted aquamarine.sea glass whale necklace design by hkm jewelry I drew the whale and hand cut it out of sheet silver, hand textured with a hammer and pierced out the eye details. Oxidizing the silver helped to highlight the details.

This sweet humpback was such a joy to create, I was sad to see it go, but was thrilled to see it on such a lovely person in the end!
