Description

Beach-found real crab claw specimen on black New Zealand sand hanging from a 25 inch bronze necklace, part of a series of resin jewellery I've created to celebrate a love of ocean critters and the life they led. Would make a great beach gift for snorkeler or diver, comes with a cute blue shell gift box and the option of gift wrap and note.

Driven by an addiction to art and an unwavering passion to protect the environment, I create each piece lovingly and with purpose, to remind people of the beauty our oceans contain. Many of my items help to raise money as well as awareness, to quite literally make a difference with every sale.

It is my passion for conservation that dictates I would NEVER kill any item to include in my work, and I check carefully that the animal is deceased before I remove it from the beach. I also do not outsource, I collect everything myself, so I am certain that EVERY specimen I have was taken only if the animal was no longer alive.

The species of crab is Leptograpsus and is beautifully & brightly coloured. They are usually found scurrying between rocks at the intertidal level of many New Zealand beaches, and use their claws to pluck algae from the rocks to eat. The Maori people call them papaka nui, which literally translates as big crab!

The black sand is also New Zealand sourced, and it makes the setting on this pendant look amazing when the sun hits it, individual grains sparkle and shine and it looks almost like the night sky (see pic 6). The cabochon setting makes the piece over 4cm tall (5cm including the connection ring) and the resin dome itself is nearly 1.5cm high. It would make a great statement piece, or go well with other sea-themed jewellery.

This year I will be working hard to add new specimen jewellery frequently, so favourite my shop or follow me on Facebook/Instagram to be the first to hear about new items.

All my items are padded to protect them during shipping (I re-use bubble-wrap, or use padding paper to keep my business green) and I use recycled materials throughout the packaging process whenever possible to reduce my footprint and impact on the environment. If you have any questions, my inbox is really friendly and checked daily.

Happy shopping! <3

FAQs

Sounds like you have good taste as this item most likely has sold out! Don't worry, I do restocks every month, so your item will be back soon. If you'd rather not wait though, or if your item appears to be particularly popular, you can also pre-order. There is no additional charge to pre-order a sold-out item, only an additional wait time whilst I make it for you. Just send me a chat and we'll go from there!
You may have seen some of my custom orders on social media, so if you're thinking of ordering one, here's the scoop:

The charge is based on the style of charm. E.g., you'll see I have a number of different orca styles in the shop. You pick your base style and that will be the cost of your custom order, no additional cost, just a little wait whilst I make it to order.

To order or discuss, simply send me a message!
My jewellery items are made from light-weight, durable plastic or sustainable 3mm plywood. I recommend safe storage, out of direct sunlight, and suggest not wearing to bed/in the shower in order to get a long life out of your new piece.
All my items come in either a gift box or gift bag, depending on the size of the charm. I select gift packaging carefully so that compliments the overall theme of my shop. I then pad the orders thoroughly to ensure they safely endure any international travel.

I re-use packaging materials wherever possible, as I'm very environmentally conscious and believe my customers are as well.

I don't include an invoice (as all transaction details are stored electronically by etsy anyway), so if you'd prefer to send the item straight to recipient as a gift, I have both gift-wrap and gift message options enabled on all listings.
All sizing details are listed per item, you should find all the details you need in the item description.
I've completed wholesale contracts from tiny boutique businesses up to clothing bigwigs like Lindy Bop, so will be more than happy to discuss a proposed wholesale agreement with you.

I'll need to know which designs you think you'd like, a rough quantity, and a timeline for when you would need them. This will all help me give you a quote faster and get to work quicker.

I look forward to working with you!
