Dungeness Crab Claw Crystal Necklace // Green Seaglass & Clear Quartz
Add some mermaid ocean energy to your life!
This beautiful Dungeness crab claw shell was collected on one of my beach walks near my home in Juneau, Alaska.
I gave new life to this baby Dungeness crab claw shell by using the magic of copper electroforming to create this unique, one of a kind necklace that can give an oceany, vibe to any style. I also added a beautiful Clear Quartz point crystal to it's grasp and a small piece of seaglass I collected on a walk.
Comes on an 18" antiqued copper chain.
See photos for size reference.
The pure copper surrounding this crab claw has been given a gunmetal patina for a darker look.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on this Dungeness crab claw necklace has 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!
Quartz is one of my favorite crystals to work with because it enhances the energy of the crystals it’s paired with, as well as allowing you to benefit from the amazing qualities of quartz itself. Quartz is known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It balances and revitalizes the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. It is associated with the Crown Chakra. Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory.
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 💜
