Freeform Peyote Covered Shell, Muted Earth Tones, Lilac n Soft Greens

Details

Please read shipping notes before ordering this piece of handmade jewelry.

This freeform peyote encrusted sea shell measures nearly four inches from top to bottom. The shell itself is varying shades of celery green on the outside and a shimmering rainbow of subtle shades of lavender on the inside. The beads are 11/0 variegated matte green/pink ab Japanese Delicas trimmed with 11/0 hex cut spectrum light 24K gold Delicas. The design is reminiscent of Art Deco pieces from long ago. The bead design is secured through natural occurring holes that run down the spine of the shell, that and not one single drop of glue.

The inspiration for this item was a gift. I work regularly with a whole host of very creative people. We routinely bounce ideas off each other and swap materials and supplies. One amazingly talented wire worker found two shells like this. She wire wrapped one for herself and gave me the other. I am useless with wire. Beads are my thing, the smaller the better. So. . .I did what I do, I beaded the thing, and beaded it and then beaded it some more.

In addition to personal checks and US Postal Money orders, I accept PayPal. Shipments paid for by check are held until the check clears.

I do not pad my shipping charges but do pass actual costs on to the buyer. ArtFire requires that I pick a number for shipping so I picked the least expensive, slow-boat-to-China rate offered by the United States Postal Service. Secondary shipping charges depend on what else you are purchasing. If you are purchasing more than one item at a time from my studio, please e-mail for shipping charges. If you wish to choose a shipping method other than the USPS to a US address, the cost is more. That said, U.S. or Canadian purchasers may choose the U.S. Postal System, UPS or Fed Ex. but please request a shipping quote before making a purchase.

International purchasers may only use U.S. Global Priority Mail. Costs for Global Priority shipments vary by destination and package weight. Please contact me for a shipping quote before making a purchase. I combine shipping costs automatically.

Insurance is optional but I accept no responsibility for damage to or loss of uninsured shipments.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

A friend gave me the shell over a year ago. My favorite color is green and she knew I would love it. Boy was she right. It took me forever to work out what I wanted to do with the piece. I have an European wardrobe with Art Deco designs in the wood. I decided to try to copy the swirls and drapes of the design in the wardrobe on the shell. I love the way it came out and hope you do too.
