Working with Seashells is a humbling experience; one slip of a jeweler's tool and they crumbles to dust.

I started with fine gauge copper annealed dead soft, giving me the flexibility needed to set the shells. I used an oversized bale on the pendant to allow Silk or velvet rope like chokers etc. Walking the beaches of Barbados is always a treat come visit us after Covid19 .
