Abalone Shell Stud Earrings
♡ Add a little mermaid & ocean energy to your life!
♡ I copper electroformed these Abalone shells into beautiful antiqued stud earrings. After the electorform process, I added patina to get the darker antiqued copper color.
♡ Electroformed onto hypoallergenic stainless steel ear posts.

All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on these Abalone stud earrings have also been coated with a protective varnish to extend the life of the natural copper shine. There are many easy techniques to bring back the lustrous copper shine such as a simple rub of a jewelry cloth, soaking in vinegar, soaking in lemon or lime juice, and even using ketchup!
Abalone healing carries energies of protection and emotional balance. It brings with it a natural shielding that blesses the person holding it with tranquility. Abalone healing is especially helpful for those going through emotional turmoil or those having a hard time dealing with a situation in a relationship. Through it’s soothing energy, it provides a layer of protection that perches the spirit up with the confidence necessary to view situations from a new, more understanding perspective. If you think of abalone as representative of water, like many cultures do, it is the water that will tame the flames of one’s emotional strife. Abalone is associated with the Crown, Third Eye, and Heart Chakra.
Copper is an excellent conductor of energy, from electricity to the mystical subtle energies emanating from higher planes. Copper is said to enhance and transmit thoughts, even over long distances. Copper also enhance the properties of the other crystals around it, so using copper in conjunction with other stones is highly beneficial to the wearer.
Electroforming is a very time intensive process that produces unique results with each piece having it's own beautiful characteristics. Each piece takes 24-48 hours just to create the copper plating, and days of prep work before and after receiving that beautiful copper energy. Lots of love and attention goes into each of my copper electroformed pieces, and I hope you enjoy them!
