Real limpet shell pendant in fine silver for the mermaid in your life.
I found this small, empty limpet shell on my local beach in Lincolnshire, England and it found it so beautiful that I carefully brought it home to be made into an enchanted mermaid necklace. I particularly love the barnacles that found their home on this shell and must have journeyed many miles on their travelling companion.
I have sealed the delicate shell and then used an electroforming technique to plate the item in copper (for strength) and then electroplated it in a good layer of bright fine silver. The shell was then given an oxidisation treatment in a gothic style to highlight the beautiful textures of this sea creature and polished it to a wonderful shine. To protect the silver layer and to stop the silver from tarnishing further, I have given it two good layers of jewellery grade metal laquer which will protect the pendants luster.
All of the treasures I use in my creations have been collected with the utmost thought and consideration to the environment.
Available on chain in a choice of lengths. For a handy guide to choosing the right necklace length for you, please visit:
