This Intricately Hand Carved Birds Bone and Shell Necklace is exquisite, it pairs well with many types of outfits. Made from a hand carved bone bird pendant, Hemalyke beads, and small tiny shell birds to tie it together. All in all making a lovely necklace.
A seashell or sea shell, also known simply as a shell, is a hard, protective outer layer created by an animal that lives in the sea. The shell is part of the body of the animal. Empty seashells are often found washed up on beaches by beachcombers. The shells are empty because the animal has died and the soft parts have been eaten by another animal or have rotted out. (the small birds used here are unknown as my mother used many different types of shells in her jewelry work.)
Hemalyke is synthetic Hematite made by using Hematite that has been ground up and a glue binder added to it before being molded into various bead shapes and sizes. It looks very much like real natural Hematite and is why it is used in jewelry more often.
This unique item can’t be back ordered or custom ordered in a different color. This is a piece that my Mother made, and since she’s passed. You will have a piece like no other person has.
Try not to wear your jewelry if you are going to be working out sweating too much, going into the ocean, when taking a shower or bath, or doing the dishes. Sometimes we forget to rinse off our jewelry after these activities or to let them air dry or dry thoroughly which can start to do extra damage over time.
