This barnacle shell was a labor of love. I raised the shell using stakes, hammering and hammering and hammering to achieve the right shape. Once accomplished, I fused and reticulated silver wire to create the "lip" at the top of the shell, then soldered balls on both the inside and outside, which were then carved to create barnacles.
The shell is one side of the necklace, and on the other side are two bezeled stones that I found in Birch Bay, WA.
The necklace is a branch, designed to wrap around your neck, 18" in length. To wear, simply pull apart, then pinch together where comfortable.
This piece is one of a kind.
