A souvenir from Italy one summer... now a modern fossil of that memory
Lido beach sterling mussel shell necklace

A common salt water mussel with three barnacles found in the sand at the Lido, taken home to NY then cast into solid sterling silver.
Oxidized by me to bring out the lovely texture & details of the shell.
The 3 barnacles have been set each with a faceted smokey quartz gem.

Mussel shell is 1 3/4 inches long, but lightweight & easy to wear
18 inch long sterling snake chain


My Modern Fossil collection was in a group show at Lesley Heller workspace summer 2011.

Handmade in NY
thanks for looking!
