Dorset Seashell wire-wrapped pendant

27shell04


Genuine Dorset sea shell carefully hand wrapped in copper wire and finished with a tiny reddish clear glass bead.

I collected this natural shell while beachcombing at Weymouth, UK, before wrapping it with hand-oxidised copper wire.

This roughly oval white fragment of shell has been heavily weathered by the sea, creating a smooth and subtly layered finish.

The piece is wrapped in aged copper wire, which is a bare copper which I have oxidised (tarnished) and then lightly polished to an antique shine. The pendant is then buffed with a protective wax to preserve the finish.
