These Limpet Shell and Cape May Diamond Dangle Earrings are made from the molding and casting of a real found Limpet shell in recycled silver. I collected the original empty mollusk shell on a beach in Delray, Florida and then sent it to a local, family owned casting company to be cast in multiples of solid metal. Once the castings are returned, I solder on jump rings and basket setting for the beach pebbles with a stud post in the back. Finally they are cleaned up, oxidized if needed and hand polished with care. The small earrings are only 1" long and 1/4" wide, the large size is about 1.25" long and 1/2" wide. This design is currently available in solid sterling silver but other metals and finishes are always available, message me for custom options and a quote. All HKM Jewelry pieces are properly hallmarked for metal type and stamped for authenticity. This item is usually always available, but you can place an order for an item that is 'out of stock' by requesting a customization, please allow 1 week to complete.
Cape May Diamonds are crystal clear quartz deposits found on the beaches of Cape May, NJ. Each stone has traveled all the way down the Delaware River on a journey to the sea that takes over a thousand years. I collect the stones myself and tumble them for 2 months to bring out their natural clarity and shine. While I do try to match the stones as best I can, each pebble is unique so please allow for slight variations in tone, size and shape. If you would like to choose your pair of stones, please send me a message as soon as you place your order, and I will send you options to choose from.
A small sized Cape May Diamond is used for the small earrings and a large is used for the large pair of earrings. If you would like a different size arrangement than what is offered, just request them in the customization portal.
