A sun-bleached tio repe (rock oyster) shell takes pride of place on a slim elongated 14k gold-filled chain link necklace.

Its naturally razor sharp edges have been sea tumbled and smoothened. Outer shell has been hand gilded with copper paint mixed with 23k real gold leaf.

No two shells are alike so shape, texture, colour and size may slightly vary from the one pictured. So just like the wearer, each shell pendant is unique!

Abundant throughout the Northern Islands of New Zealand, this shell has been sustainably harvested from one of the rocky beach shores of the Bay of Islands, New Zealand.

Chain link size: 5.5 x 2mm
Chain length: 24in/50cm
Shell size: varies from 20-25mm height.

Materials: 14k gold filled (brass bass) chain, natural shell, copper paint, 14k gold leaf, resin, sculpting clay.

14K Gold-Filled - brass base chain has been gold filled with 14k gold. Gold filled chain has 100% more gold than ordinary gold plating. It is also is much more valuable and resistant to tarnish. It does not flake off, rub off or turn colors.
