Description

The Horseshoe Crab Tail Earrings are made from the molding and casting of a real found Horseshoe Crab Tail in recycled silver. As the Horseshoe Crabs grow they molt, or shed their exoskeletons, the sheds wash up all over the beaches of the world. I collected the original tail from a molt in Cape May, New Jersey, where Horseshoe Crabs are known to breed, and sent it to my local casting company to be molded and cast in solid metal. Once the pieces are returned, they are cleaned, soldered to sterling french hooks and finally hand polished with care. The tail itself measures ¼” wide and 2 ½” long on ¾” long hooks. This design is currently available in either oxidized or polished, solid sterling silver, but other metals are always available, message me for custom options and a quote. All HKM Jewelry pieces are properly hallmarked for metal type and stamped for authenticity.

*Model is wearing the polished earrings in all but the last image*

Packaging:
All HKM Jewelry will be neatly packaged in HKM branded boxes and recycled shipping materials. If you need your item gift wrapped, please select that option at checkout and I would be happy to use colorful, seasonal gift wrap or an HKM branded purple gift bag. There is also an option to include a personalized note!

Care:
All jewelry needs special care, even the “indestructible” kinds! My jewelry is meant to last for generations when proper steps are taken, but natural aging and wear can occur. Jewelry should be the last thing you put on and the first thing you take off each day, avoiding contact with makeup, lotions and sprays will prolong its finish. Keeping your silver in plastic is the best way to prevent tarnish when not being worn. Do not swim in chlorine or saltwater wearing your HKM Jewelry and it is not recommended to clean or wash dishes with chemicals that can breakdown the metal or stones. All Jewelry can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap and a toothbrush, a polishing cloth will restore shine and help with tarnish on your silver. Use ketchup to remove tarnish from items with stones, as the vinegar is more gentle on them than tarnish removing chemicals. Just cover your piece with ketchup, scrub with a toothbrush or your hands, then rinse and dry well.
