Copper Crab Shell Choker

£ 56.99 tax incl.

This unusual choker is a real crab shell which was collected on the beach of Loch Long, Argyll & Bute.  Crab shells are very delicate so particularly difficult to preserve in copper. The shell has been electroformed in copper and hangs from two jump rings on either side of the shell.  It is then hung from a pure copper choker.  A highly unusual statement piece which will definitely turn heads!

More info

Electroforming is a process of growing copper around an item.  It is an electrochemical procedure which can produce stunning effects, where no two pieces will ever turn out the same. Each item starts life as a real, living object it them goes through a process of sealing and making it conductive and then finally encasing it in copper.  Electroforming takes several days and is a delicate, skilled process.

Whilst some of our other pieces are left to patina naturally this claw has been sealed with a non toxic lacquer to help it retain it's brightness. It has a 16 inch solid copper choker, however this can be changed to a chain if you so wish.

All our items are truly unique as you never find two pieces alike!
