A perfect handcrafted shell pendant for the summer, tactile with fluid organic lines. The Ostrich Foot shell is from my travels to New Zealand and the remaining part left of the shell has been tumbled over and over by the sea. All are individual in shape and colouring, therefore, each piece I create will be totally unique.
I wanted to design shell jewellery unlike anything I’ve seen before, letting the natural shapes dictate the outcome. I have entwined the soft, hand dyed silk cord around the shells, choosing shades that blend beautifully with their natural colours. Enhancing the shells without overpowering them.
The finishing detailing in the design is the subtle touch of a sparkle where I have included 5 mm frosted silver bead. The pendant is adjustable by simply sliding the silver tube along the cord to your desired length. The silk cord is durable and the dye colour is fast. The whole necklace can be gently hand washed in warm soapy water.
A tactile pendant that can be enjoyed year after year for many summers to come.
