These small little shell necklaces are actually made using an a shell that I found on the beach here in Dorset. I pressed it into clay, then fired the clay which made what is called a sprig mould. I then take a ball of clay and press it into the sprig, then carefully take it out by using another ball of clay like a plunger! I pierce a hole in the top so that I can add a bail to hang the shell from. I then carefully let it dry. Once nearly completely dry I sponge off the edges. After it has dried it is then fired, glazed three times, then fired again. Quite a process but beautiful results. All my ceramics go through the same drying and glazing process.
Hanging from a sterling silver pronged bail on a sterling silver 18 inch diamond cut trace chain.
Approx just under 2cm wide by 1.5cm from top to the bottom of the shell as I say approx.
There are 3 necklaces available.
Gift wrapped in an organza bag ready for giving.
