This Cast Whelk Bar Necklace is made from the molding and casting of a real found Whelk Shell Core. I collected the original ages worn shell on a beach in Cape May, New Jersey and then sent it to a local, family owned casting company to be cast in multiples of solid metal. Once the casting is returned, I solder on jump rings and a chain length of your choice. Finally the pendant is hand polished with care.
The charm itself is 2″ across and 1/4″ thick and soldered securely to an 18″ silver chain.
All HKM Jewelry pieces are properly hallmarked for metal type and stamped for authenticity.
