18K Gold Mussel Shell Diamond Pendant
Another treasure I loved to collect along the shoreline as a girl, every mussel shell is unique, except for its mirror image. Its rough, lined texture is not just an intriguing surface, but a sign of its years, its journey.
This pendant was hand carved in wax, each line carefully cut and sculpted to replicate the mottled blue ribs found on the water’s edge. After being cast in 18 karat gold using the lost wax method, I clean up the imperfections and apply a stippled texture. This mussel shell is accented with a 3mm diamond, nearly 1/10 of a carat.

Pendant measures 1” long by ½” wide and comes on an 18” chain, other lengths available.
