Rock Crab Shell Necklace // Copper Electroformed
I was gifted lots of these tiny red rock crab shells and used the magical process of copper electroforming to immortalize these little babes in pure copper to create wearable art that makes you feel like a mermaid.
18” antiqued copper chain
18” Black Faux Suede Cord
18” Brown Faux Suede Cord
Length of chain or cord can also be adjusted upon request, otherwise it will be 18” in length which is standard necklace length.
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.
