Genuine Dorset sea shell carefully hand wrapped in copper wire and finished with blue glass beads.
I collected this natural shell while beachcombing at Weymouth, UK, before wrapping it with antique-tone copper wire.
This little whelk shell has been tumbled by the sea, creating a white frosted finish while retaining some of the shell’s original ridges and a hint of brown colour. The beads are salvaged from old jewellery.
On the back of the piece are decorative copper spirals, meaning it can be worn either way around!
