Oyster Shell and Pearls Necklace
When I used to see an oyster shell, most of the time it was "yummy!" Now, I see opportunity (and also, yummy!)
This shell has been coated in UV resin to help add strength and also enhance its natural beauty. All of my shells were gathered from Fort Monroe Outlook Beach in Virginia. The shell features a variety of items dangling inside including pearls and Czech glass. Center oyster measures 2" long. Necklace is strung on a chain made of pearls, metal heishi, metal turtles and fish, and faceted clear and pink Czech glass.
Necklace measures 16" long, lobster clasp.
