Don and Jeanne Cassanova have been creating handmade jewelry using stones sourced from the sea since 1975. Their custom designs combine sterling silver with colorful sea glass - luminescent glass extracted from the ocean. Many of their pendants show small pieces of sea glass encircled by the tentacles of sea animals or embedded in it’s belly.

They can also create custom pieces with clients’ stones and gems. To protect the earth’s natural resources, the Cassanovas do not use any freshly mined stones in their work. They invite you to say hello at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals and admire their environmentally conscious creations.
