DESCRIPTION
A beachcombed fragment from an old sun-bleached Kuakua seashell. As these aged shells are exposed to the natural elements and time, they form a rich surface of eroding borings, holes and cracks. Hand formed with sculptor’s mica clay that has been speckled with New Zealand beach sand. Hangs on a delicate sterling silver chain necklace.
