Mussel Shell Stud Earrings // Made in Alaska // Alaskan Blue Mussel Seashell
Add some mermaid ocean energy to your life!
These tiny blue mussel shells were collected on my beach walks near my home in Juneau, Alaska and transformed into these beautiful copper stud earrings by the process of electroforming.
Made with hypoallergenic stainless steel ear posts and backs. See last photo for size reference with the dime.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on these mussel shell earrings have also been coated with a protective varnish to extend the life of the natural copper shine.
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!
*Note - All shells collected were empty and washed up along the high tide line. I would never harm a living being to create my pieces 💜
