Sea Glass Lighthouse Necklace

A Mom, Her Kids,
and their Jeweler Dad
The Origin of Our
Sea Glass Lighthouse
Necklace & Earrings

Summers in Maine, a mom and her two young sons picked up sea glass on beaches in Cape Elizabeth. After years of collecting, bags of real Maine sea glass were stored in the attic and almost forgotten.

The dad, Marty, is a fine art gem cutter. One day a neighbor familiar with his work asked him to make her a lighthouse necklace out of sea glass. Marty thought about the bags of sea glass in his attic and made his first Sea Glass Lighthouse for her. It was so beautiful that he made a second lighthouse and brought it in to show us. We were delighted with his new piece and asked him to make more. Initially, he was reluctant because his first love is fine art gem cutting. He agreed to start making them for us, and the rest is, as they say, history.

Sea Glass Lighthouse
Necklaces

Marty’s original Sea Glass Lighthouse was made in sterling silver. The lighthouse was an intarsia of the four most prevalent sea glass colors, light blue, blue, green, and brown, with a silver light tower at the top. Having quickly become one of our most beloved items, we then introduced Sea Glass Lighthouse earrings.

Over the years, we would get requests for our Sea Glass Lighthouses in gold. A few years ago, we went back to Marty and asked him if he could make a set in gold. He created our first set of gold lighthouses. We have shown them ever since. The gold light tower at the top now becomes the light of the lighthouse at the golden hour of sunrise and sunset.

Portland Headlight — Ram Island Light “Marty’s Light”

Portland Headlight
and Ram Island Light

There are two lighthouses at the entrance to Portland Harbor: Portland Headlight on the left and Ram Island Light on the right. Marty lives less than two miles from both lighthouses. We call the Ram Island Light “Marty’s Light.”

Marty said something when I placed our order. He said, “Thank you.” He’s said thank you many times before, but this time he said thank you three times. I really felt how much he meant it. I said, “You’re welcome.” I, too, felt grateful for having this deep, long-term working relationship and how the things he designs, makes, and creates relate to everything we do. Thank you, Martin, for being with us all these years.

Lighthouses
Symbols of Hope, Good Directions,
and a Heartfelt Welcome Home

Lighthouses are saviors.
Lighthouses say caution: rocks, shoals, danger.
Lighthouses say beware.
Lighthouses say this is the way home.

They are sturdy, solid, and an anchor for life at sea. By their presence, lighthouses welcome us by day and they caution and save us by night. Lighthouses are solid, steadfast, and, some might say, brave too, facing the storm and waves, shining their light of hope, good direction and welcome home.

Maine has 65 lighthouses.
Maine also has a 3,478-mile coastline
of prime beach glass hunting shorefront,
the combination is a perfect symbol of a
welcome home to Maine.

2) Maine’s Lighthouse Day: Two dozen Maine lighthouses open to tours. Walk up the spiral stairs. Really grand views.

 

3) Take a Maine Lighthouse Boat Tour to see the lighthouses from the water.

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
