These Moon Snail Stud Earrings are made from the molding and casting of real found Moon Snail shells in recycled silver. I collected the original empty mollusk shells on a beach in Cape May, New Jersey and then sent them to a local, family owned casting company to be cast in multiples of solid metal. Once the castings are returned, I solder on the silver ear post. Finally they are cleaned up and hand polished with care. Each stud comes with a proper sterling butterfly back ear nut for its post.
The Moon Snail shells are only 10mm long and wide.
All HKM Jewelry pieces are properly hallmarked for metal type and stamped for authenticity.
