WE USE IN OUR COLLECTIONS
What is Sea glass?
Sea glass begins as bottles and glass fragments that are tumbled by the ocean waves to form colourful gems of the shore. Nature acts like a giant tumbler recycling these pieces of discarded glass. It can take many years in the surf environment for sea glass to transform into smooth pieces. These gems of the sea can be found in all shapes, colors and textures. No wonder they are sought after by avid beachcombers. Sea glass – a true natural treasure!
Our Other Materials
At Tanis Designs, we source the finest quality freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, Czechoslovakian glass and Swarovski crystals to incorporate into our designs.
We love repurposing antique and vintage jewellery, bringing beads and components back to life in our one-of-a-kind creations.
In our Sea Life collection, we use recycled glass and authentic sea glass. All of our components are nickel-free 925. sterling silver and 14K gold-filled.
I’m ready to get my sparkle on!
