An old sunbleached clam fragment has undergone bioerosion, resulting in beautiful organic patterns of sponge-like bores and holes.

Suspends on a slim elongated 24k gold-plated chain link necklace.

Set on a sculpted clay setting.and has been hand gilded with a mixture of 23k gold leaf, powder and metallic copper paint.

No two shell fragments 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!
