A bold and unique piece of art jewellery, this piece is made using a process called lost wax casting, whereby a perfect replica of the natural object is made in wax. This wax copy is then used to create the final metal object. Each piece is then hand filed, finished and polished. This piece is cast from crab shells gathered on the beaches of Devon and Cornwall. This cast is made from bronze casting metal and finished with a sterling silver belcher chain. The chain can either be ordered as polished sterling silver or oxidised silver. Oxidising is a process of ageing the chain that creates a blackened finish. The chain is then polished to give it a gunmetal sheen.
