Maine Mussel Shell Pendant with Barnacle
Handcrafted in sterling silver, featuring a natural mussel shell that I collected on my local beaches. These shells are very thin and fragile in their natural state, so I gingerly clean and polish them. I do not enhance their color- it's all natural! They are filled with a clear resin to provide structural integrity, and set in silver with an open back to allow the light to pass through the translucent shells. To finish the piece off I set a handcrafted silver barnacle into the shell, and suspend the pendant from an 18" rope chain.
