Limpet Seashell Necklace
♡ Add some mermaid ocean energy to your life!
♡ This beautiful large limpet shell was collected on one of my beach walks near my home in Juneau, Alaska. I gave new life to this Alaskan limpet shell by turning it into a unique copper electroformed necklace that you can wear to take the essence of the sea and copper energy with you wherever the wind blows you.
It comes on an 18" antiqued copper chain and the pendant itself is about 1.25" tall. Please see photos for size reference.
The shell has been cleaned and lightly bleached to remove any unwanted smells and has been carefully given a very light clear varnish for protection and to bring out the natural shine of the shell.
All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on this Alaskan limpet 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!
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, organic 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!
