I was gifted this tiny red rock crab shell and used the magical process of copper electroforming to immortalize this little babe in pure copper to create wearable art that makes you feel like a mermaid.

Comes on an 18” antiqued copper chain. Chain length can be adjusted upon request. 

Crab shell size measures a little over an inch. See last photo for size reference. 

All copper will eventually oxidize and tarnish with time and wear, but the copper on this crab 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. Copper also has many anti-microbial properties. 

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.

♡ Made with love and good vibes in Juneau, Alaska.
