she sells sea shells
say that 5 times fast! sure, i live in the inland empire of california, miles from the ocean and far from the east coast, where i collected these shells myself at okracoke island off the coast of north carolina. i polished them, drilled holes in the top, and strengthened them with resin. then i strung them all together with a freshwater pearl on a copper chain that i had antiqued. i think they look great all together: neutral and nautical!
this necklace is available at my etsy store for $32 USD.
i also recently made another shell necklace, this time with capiz shells in aqua blue and spring green with a tiny mother of pearl bead, all strung on a sterling silver chain. it’s available at my etsy store for $28 USD.
