Description

This set is made using shiva shells, fossilized shells from an Operculum Snail, found on the coasts of India, Thailand, and Australia. I sculpted a clay twist around the pendant to frame it, then electroformed the twist to plate it with copper and added a 21-inch chunky copper chain. I made two small shells into matching earrings. The posts are surgical steel. The electroforming process takes several days to complete. In this case, apoxie clay was used to create the twist. After curing for 24 hours, a conductive paint was added, then the piece went into a copper solution where electricity slowly encouraged copper to plate onto the item over the course of many hours. Finally, a patina was added to mimic time wearing the copper, then highlights were polished out to show wear and the entire piece was sealed for protection. Although sealed, copper shouldn't be submersed in or exposed to water or harsh elements. If the copper rests against skin, skin can sometimes turn green when there is moisture present - this is normal and will go away once the copper is no longer present. Note that I haven't had this happen with necklaces myself, only rings since hands are much more moist. Copper can continue to patina, aging naturally over time. Treat your new statement necklace with care and it will become a lasting heirloom. All purchases are sent in a gift bag.
