Love this


Locket made from a natural Limpet shell and vintage and modern beads. The pendant is created by beading around the limpet to create a mount for it, The piece is backed with leather and a copper effect locket frame stitched into the backing and leather with fine copper wire. leather is glued to the back of the locket to match the backing.
Strands of seed beads are attached to the edge, finished with old mauve bicone crystals, flourite beads and recycled baroque pearls, the central strand is finished with a purple striped, heart shaped bead.
The locket is suspended by four loops of beads on a sterling silver wire torque, approximately 45cm long


I made a few of these a while ago, starting with a long hollow shell someone gave me, it struck me that the hollow in the shell was wasted if I just closed it up as usual. I found the locket frames on a website which solved the problem for me. I found this lovely purplish shell recently so I decided to make another one. The others have always had very simple edges but I decided this time to go for the full stranded fringe.
