The shells I collected from my time working in the travel industry, particularly when I visited French Polynesia, the hotels gave their visitors shells as a welcome. I have drilled the holes myself and it's great to put these shells into use in jewellery.

The shell is wire wrapped in sterling silver and attached to a sterling silver 'fisherman hook' ear wire.


The ear wire measures 18 x 9 mm. With the shell the drop measures approximately 36mm.


These shells are natural so each one will vary slightly in colour and size.


The wire wrap is done by hand and each wrap will vary slightly in style and size.


Drop length: 36 Millimetres; Width: 12 Millimetres
