A sun-bleached tio repe (rock oyster) shell takes pride of place on a slim elongated 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: 6mm x 3mm 24k gold plated on brass chain OR 8.5 x 5.5mm 14k gold filled chain
Chain length: adjustable length 18in/45cm to 24in/50cm
Shell size: varies from 20-25mm height.

24k gold plated on brass chain or 14k gold filled chain, natural shell, copper paint, 23k gold leaf, resin, sculpting clay.

24K gold-plated on brass or 14K gold-filled (brass base). Gold filled has 100% more gold than gold plating. Gold filled is much more valuable and tarnish resistant.
