This handmade necklace features a large gray piece of Lake Erie beach glass (personally found by me) bezel set in sterling silver, with 3 sterling silver starfish soldered to a sterling silver backplate. Two wrapped sterling silver ball headpin bails secure the pendant through holes drilled in the backplate. The pendant hangs from a 18" sterling silver 1.6mm wheat chain that fastens with a lobster clasp. There is a NARFdesign maker's mark on the back, along with a .925 sterling quality mark.
The pendant portion of the necklace measures about 1 1/2" (40mm) in height, and about 1 1/4" (34mm) in width.

I have always been fascinated by the ocean and the beach, and many of my fondest memories are of my childhood growing up near the coast of Maine. Due to my career as a web designer, I now live closer to Lake Erie (which surprisingly looks like a sea it’s that big) but I feel the calling of coastal life now more than ever.
My collection of jewelry and accessories is inspired by my favorite beaches of this great country. The sea/beach glass in each one of my designs can be traced to a specific coastal region, and primarily features glass that I have either hand-picked or sourced myself (aka friends and family who also enjoy beach combing). Each piece containing glass is specified as containing sea or beach glass in the design details, referring to the regions in which the glass was sourced: beach glass is from the Great Lakes region, and sea glass is from the ocean.
