Each handcrafted dangle features an etched seashell which was then hand-sawed out into a copper shell silhouette. Recessed areas were patinated (oxidized) and brush back, highlighting the pattern of the shell. Patina is sealed with a spray gloss finish to ensure long lasting color. Please note that the color looks more intense in the photographs listed due to the light set up, color of the earrings may seem darker in person but pop in the daytime/sunlight! Ear wires are sterling silver.
