I grew up in South Florida and both my parents were avid divers. One of my mom's favorite things to make (which I don't know that people are still able to harvest conchs, but back then they were plentiful) was conch fritters! I might have loved the shells the most, though.
These amazingly, delicately detailed flowers are hand carved from conch shells! Let no part of the animal go to waste! Honor the animal by utilizing all it has to give.
The soft, happy Spring pink draws my face into a smile every time I see them!
I hand forged these sterling silver earrings out of 18g wire. It's slightly thicker than the traditional earring wire I use, but the supreme light-weight of the flowers keep the piece mega comfortable and ideally strong!
Just slide them in your ears and breathe in that fresh Spring air!
These are the only kind of glass pieces you will find in my collection. Typically I use gemstones, diamonds, and fossils. This is the first time I've utilized something man made. Why the special exception? It was made over 900-3,000 years ago!
These were salvaged from larger broken pieces and made into beautiful pieces that can be used for jewelry!
