These weathering processes produce natural frosted glass. "Genuine sea glass" can be collected as a hobby and is used for decoration, most commonly in jewelry. Sea glass can be found here in Aqaba, where it is collected to craft unique pieces of jewelry. You will work with a local artisan to create beautiful pieces of jewelry out of sea glass from Aqaba’s beaches.
Participants will arrive at the Green Creations building and will be welcomed
with traditional Arabic coffee or tea followed by introductions.
Participants will be given a tour of the design studio, including the history of
GC and an explanation of the materials they use.
Participants will learn about the piece of jewelry they will be making to take
home, the wire wrap pendant necklace. The materials used will be explained
and then the participants will choose the piece of glass they would like to have
as their own pendant.
A craftswoman will demonstrate how a wire wrap pendant is made, and the
participants will be given a piece of practice glass and practice wire. The
craftswoman will work with the participants to get an idea of how to wrap the
wire using the tools available. The participants will practice doing the wire
wrap on the practice glass and wire. Once they feel confident in these skills,
they will be given higher-quality wire and they will wrap the glass pendant that
they chose. The craftswoman will assist as needed.
The participants will be given a chain and a bag to take their pendant with
them. Attendees can ask any additional questions about Green Creations
during this time and they can shop/look at the other products in the studio.
