Inspired by the beauty of the natural world, Designer Robin Renzi has created a collection of some of her most favorite shells that she has found from beaches as close as Long Island and as far away as India. One side is covered in 99.9% fine silver through the unique technique of electro forming while the other exposes the natural beauty of each shell. Its many charms make this necklace on chain uniquely dynamic within the Natural Shell Collection. Seventeen playfully arranged shells, turquoise beads, Fossilized Walrus Ivory and 10K gold charms chime together, and sing the songs of the sea.
Jingle shells ranging in size from ¾” x ¾” to 7/8” x 7/8” to 1 1/8” x 1 1/8” create the rhythm of this bold piece. Their nine unique volumes create pools of milky golden of warm citrus with a silver lining. Interspersed amongst them, are vibrant Sleeping beauty turquoise Beads, measuring ½ x ¼,3/8 x 3/8 , and 7/8” x 3/8”. Delicate charms of Fossilized Walrus Ivory are hand carved into a 1 ¼” ¼” Horn and a 1 1/8” x 3/8” Leaf. Another leaf appears from behind a jingle shell, even more finely crafted , measures 7/8” x ¼ “ in Recycled 10K Gold. The two final touches are a tiny 1 1/8” x ¼” Spiral Cone Shell covered on one face with fine silver, and a triangular piece of royal Blue Sea glass, 5/8” x ½” , softened by years spent at sea, set in to fine silver, recalling shark teeth.
