Snail in a box

A friendly wee creature to add to your collection (unless you are a gardener). This small free standing snail (approx. 4cm, 1.5in long) comes with it's own habitat and can be displayed in there or in any other creative way you can come up with.

They are made from silver plated copper wire and a glass marble. The box usually contains an assortment of moss and twigs (please note if ordering from Australia please request no organic matter as it will be stopped at customs).

Please note there is free UK postage on all my items.

Choose the marble colour and pattern or message me about a specific marble from the grid reference.
Please note not all patterns are available for every colour.

I absolutely LOVE these earrings. They are sturdy yet intricate and just as pictured. A great set of earrings for an insect enthusiast.

As always, Becka was a pleasure to do business with. Her work is beautiful! The purchase was easy, and the delivery was quicker than expected. Hopefully, one day I can get to Edinburgh to buy directly from her!!
