African Seas Natural Shell Necklace. I had so much fun creating this necklace. Who wouldn’t, with its shiny bits of silver seed beads and glints of blue glass seed beads, and of course, the wild shell. The shell is magnificent.

This necklace was inspired by the person who found the shell along South Africa’s shores and gave it to me.

To me, the person who wears this necklace will be like her - bold, vivacious, energetic, spiritual, beautiful and fun. She’s a great friend and has inspired me in all aspects of life.

This wonderfully organic shell is white on the side that’s rough and textured, and a creamier white on the shiny, smooth inside, with hints of light caramel and one spot of cocoa. It is exactly as she found it, except for the hole I bored into it. It can be worn facing the front rough side, or the back, polished, shiny side.

Just above the shell are two handmade Ethiopian silver prayer beads. I unfortunately didn’t travel to Ethiopia to acquire these beads, but rather purchased them here in South Africa. One day, I do hope to go to Ethiopia for their amazing handmade beads.

I strung the rest of the necklace with what I believe are blue lace agate nuggets and three strands of tiny blue glass seed beads, interspersed with silver colored seed beads. The seed beads are the most beautiful blue - clear and bright in the light.

I handcrafted the clasp out of stainless steel wire. I’ve free formed a “bead” with a lighter gage wire just above the sterling silver spacers that separate the three strands.

For fun, I created some sparkles to dangle down your back. One is a round pink quartz bead, there is a tiny pink shell, and the rest are glass beads.

By the way, the person who inspired this necklace – I’m married to her son!

The shell measures roughly 7cm x 5.5cm (approximately 2 ¾ inch x just over 2 inches).

The necklace is 50cm (19 ¾ inches).
