A solid golden brass cast limpet shell, the original shell was found on Porthmeor Beach in St Ives, Cornwall. The brass has been polished & lacquered so no cleaning required.
The shell measures approx. 38mm wide x 49mm long. This brooch is quite heavy but is ideal to use as a pin for a wrap or on a heavy weight fabric making a real statement piece.

Supplied gift boxed as shown.
Due to the handmade nature of this piece the colour may vary slightly to the photograph.

This piece is also available in a Sterling Silver version please contact me for details.....

I ordered this card for a friends anniversary who is cat mad so it is just purrfect! Love all the products by Sharon, have bought quite a few cards and have a growing collection of jewellery which when I am not on holiday in beautiful Cornwall & not visiting her lovely shop order via Etsy. Everything arrives well packaged & on time. Totally recommend!!
