A sun-bleached tio repe (rock oyster) shell takes pride of place on a slim elongated chain link necklace.
Set on a sculpted bail setting. Shell & setting has been hand gilded with copper paint, 23k gold leaf and powder.
No two shell are alike so shape, texture, colour and size may slightly vary from the one pictured. Some shells may be more sun-bleached than others. So just like it's wearer, each shell pendant is unique!
