About Oceano Sea Glass

Oceano Sea Glass  Authentic Sea Glass Rare Red Sea Glass

We celebrate sun, sand & authentic sea glass!

We are the premiere maker of genuine sea glass jewelry, supplying to many of the finest galleries, resort hotels, coastal boutiques and museum stores in the US, Canada and Caribbean. Contact us, if you are interested in wholesale sea glass jewelry.

Oceano Sea Glass Jewelry offers wholesale sea glass earrings, sea glass pendants, sea glass bracelets and sea glass rings of .925 sterling silver and eco-friendly, unaltered sea glass. With an emphasis on meticulous craftsmanship and graceful design, each piece is imbued with a bit of history, a splash of color and the spirit of the sea.

We try to do the right thing for the right reason. Sea glass is essentially trash - remade into little gems by the ocean.  To further reduce our environmental impact, we source silver from recycled scrap, not newly mined ore.  In our dedication to living in harmony with nature, we support the efforts of Surfrider Foundation and the Ocean Conservancy.  We are animal lovers who rescue abandoned dogs and work to promote their adoption through the Defensa Animal de Rincón. We work with earth and people-friendly partners and suppliers who share our values and strive to make a positive difference in the world.

We love originality and authenticity and stand strongly against the mass-produced / throw-away mind set.  Oceano Sea Glass Jewelry is crafted to be fresh, timeless and treasured for a lifetime.  We stand behind the enduring quality and workmanship of our jewelry.   Your purchase is unconditionally guaranteed.

 

Meet the Designer

"Discovering sea glass on a wind-swept beach during a chance trip was the moment my past met my future".

Christine Gable Epstein Oceano Sea Glass Studio


All of the sea glass used in Oceano designs is guaranteed authentic. Its shape and surface created solely by the powerful force and rich salinity of the sea. It is not altered, cut or conditioned in anyway. It's just as it was found -- shaped by the ocean waves.

The sea glass selected for our designs may have originated from anywhere in the world, but it is found mainly on the shores of Puerto Rico, California, Hawaii and Oregon. We have the pleasure of collecting much of it from the beach ourselves.  The rest is supplied by gatherers who are fellow members of The National Sea Glass Association, an organization that governs and protects the integrity of natural sea glass.

When my sisters and I were little, our grandmother made clothes for our dolls. Together we combed through scraps of fabric, lace, and odd buttons from which came fabulous little dresses. It was like magic! Coming from a family of seamstresses gave me a love of anything tactile and a yen to do something useful with my hands. A native of Pennsylvania, at 18 I left for New York City to study at the School of Visual Arts. For further training, I attended classes at the Revere Academy of Jewelry in San Francisco.

Now, with a Caribbean home base -- the ocean, beach and natural world are pure inspiration. "Beach memories forever" is my goal and my promise to you. The bliss of an endless summer, full of simple pleasures -- combing the shoreline for shells, iced lemonade, towering sand castles, star-lit skies. To be enjoyed wherever you are!
