Gold Dipped Seashell Necklace.
This gorgeous seashell necklace has been carefully drilled and hand "dipped" in gold. Gold dipped comes from the appearance these pieces have as if they were dipped in a pot of gold but each piece, after it has been carefully drilled to prevent damage, cracks, or even shatters, has then been painted with a special adhesive and left to dry. The adhesive keeps a sticky feel to it. Once it's perfectly sticky I then place the gold leaf paper carefully and seal it with a special sealant and leave to dry for about an hour. I then turn the piece into a pendant and then string it on gold filled chain and complete the necklace. Each piece is carefully made to perfection and then packaged in upcycled jewelry boxes. Each box is carefully wrapped by me. Each package comes with care instructions so your jewelry piece can last you for many years to come. 5% of each item sold is put aside to be donated at the end of the year to help preserve our marine life and our oceans.
