Alaskan Seashell Necklace with Larimar
Add some ocean energy to your life and feel like a mermaid with this powerful combo!
This little seashell was collected on my beach walks near my home in Juneau, Alaska.
I gave new life to this shell by adding a beautiful Larimar stone and copper electroforming it into a beautiful, unique little pendant necklace. After the electroform process, I gave it a patina for a more antiqued copper feel.
Choice of chain/cord option:
18” copper chain
18” black faux suede cord
18” brown faux suede cord
Necklace length can also be adjusted upon request.
See last photo for shell size reference.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on this Alaskan seashell necklace has also been coated with a metal specific 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!
Larimar is the ultimate ocean stone! It brings the ancient wisdom of Atlantis and the healing power of dolphins to harmonize the body and soul. Larimar is one of the cardinal Water element stones, yet is born of Fire in it’s volcanic origins. One of the few crystals to balance the polarities of these energies, Larimar cools tempers and calms fears, relieves stress and nurtures the physical and emotional bodies. It is powerful in meditation and in connecting to the Divine Feminine, and is particularly helpful in releasing emotional bonds, patterns or principles that no longer serve the highest good. A stone of clear communication, it provides the strength and courage needed to speak openly from the heart.
Larimar is found only in the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. It occurs as needle-like crystals, grown together in a solid mass and forms in cavities within basaltic lava.
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 enhances 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 textured 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 💜
