Glassy Day Studio

The Story of Glassy Day

Hi, from Glassy Day Studio! I'm Erica, lover of Jesus, jewels, and surfing. The jewelry from this little studio is shaped from 𝗿𝗲𝗰𝘆𝗰𝗹𝗲𝗱 𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗳𝗯𝗼𝗮𝗿𝗱 𝗿𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗻. It's packed with color, love, and purpose.

The journey to Glassy Day started with a desire to create designs based on the jewelry I've inherited from my grandmothers. I was raised by my paternal grandmother and had one particular necklace and some earrings I thought I could replicate.

My first attempts to recreate those designs failed. As soon as I discovered surfite, or recycled surfboard resin, everything clicked.

God wasn't telling me to recreate what already existed. He was telling me to create from my heart, in honor of what I've learned from the amazing women in my life.

As a long-time surfer, using the waste material from the board shaping process makes so much sense as I create pieces that other strong and water-loving women will wear.

Why "Glassy Day"? The best days on the water are the ones with glassy, peeling waves. In Matthew 8, Jesus calms the storm, making it immediately glassy. The disciples were amazed and said, "Even the winds and the waves obey him!"

More Than Jewelry

10% of every Glassy Day Studio purchase is donated to support kinship/relative care of foster children.

  • Resin Source

    Glassy Day Studio recycles the waste material from the surfboard shaping process to create each piece of wearable art. Our surfite is sourced from a local surf shop in Pensacola, Florida.

  • Leah, the Lathe

    The most important tool in the studio is Leah, the Lathe. Large chunks of surfite are cut into small blanks, which are then put on the lathe and turned (literally) into bangles, hoops, beads, and more.

  • Designs

    Glassy Day Studio designs are inspired by jewelry I've inherited from my grandmothers. Each design is named after a woman in the Bible and individual color names are inspired by surfing and the ocean.
