Cockleshell tiny silver pendant

Cockleshell tiny silver pendant

 I live on the South Coast of England and although somehow I never manage it as often as I'd  like, there are few things I enjoy as much as a beach walk and a spot of shell collecting. This tiny little pendant reminds me of happy summer days spent sitting on the beach sifting through the sand and pebbles at my feet, while listening to seagulls and crashing waves.

The Pendant

The pendant features a tiny, hand-etched cockleshell design which has gently been antiqued with a dark oxidising patina to bring out the detail, and then finished with microcrystalline wax, to resist tarnishing and finger prints. On the reverse side, it is quality marked 999, which denotes fine silver.  It has been carefully formed from precious metal clay, a material which offers a more eco-friendly alternative to mined silver as it uses reclaimed silver. (To learn more about this, please take a look under the Silver Jewellery notes on my About page). 

The pendant measures approximately 1 cm round and is attached via a silver jump ring to an 18 inch, 925 sterling silver curb chain which fastens with a spring ring clasp and is quality marked 925.

Each piece of Holaweg silver jewellery comes beautifully presented and ready to gift. So as to avoid another bit of single-use plastic going into landfill, where possible I will send your order in a neatly re-labelled, re-used,clean padded envelope. But of course, please let me know if you'd prefer a new envelope instead and I will make sure that you get one.

I always obtain proof of posting and if you have selected a tracked service, I'll provide you with the tracking number for your order as soon as it ships. However, while everything I have ever posted previously has arrived safe and sound at its destination without any problems, please note that I can't be held responsible for your order getting lost in the post. I provide a range of shipping options with different delivery aims, levels of tracking and compensation for loss or damage so please pick the service that suits you best. If you need a service with extra insurance, please contact me for a quote.
