My kids and I lived in Florida in the early 80's. We loved walking the beach in the early mornings and picking up shells. I made some molds from some of my favorite shells and this pendant is one. It was formed with Copper Clay and fired in my kiln for 4.5 hours at 1800 degrees. I am always attracted to the shells that are LESS than perfect. If you look closely, you will find imperfections in this pendant. For some reason, those imperfections make it absolutely PERFECT in my eyes! After firing, the pendant is cleaned with a wire brush and then tumbled for hours. There is no patina on this shell. It hangs from an 18" copper chain and finished with a hand made copper hook and eye clasp. All is finished with a lacquer clear coat to prevent further oxidation.
