This little sea shell is all hand painted with professional grade acrylic paints in earth tones and blues. It has a tribal look to it with Aztec inspired patterns. I loved working in harmony with the shells natural markings as I painted, almost as if the shell itself was telling me where to place my brush. The pendant is strung on soft, cognac leather cord with a simple antiqued brass lobster clasp in the back. As each shell and each little painting is different, this necklace is one of a kind. Shell pendant measures approximately 1.25 inches (3.2 cm) long. Leather cord measures 16 inches. Please see nickel in the fourth photo for visual size reference.
