Little Snails

These little sea snails are a kind of turban shell, and are a common sight around the world.  Maybe it’s because of its ubiquity that we always get a thrill out of their perfect little spirals! They come in a range of beautiful multicoloured shades, but after they’re tumbled in the sand, the outer layer of color is removed and they end up beautifully pure white.

Details

Our Sterling Silver Little Snails Drop Earrings feature a little sterling silver sea snail on sterling earwires. We find our snail shells empty in the sand; we never take things alive from the sea. These shells start out with an intricate pattern of color on them, but after being tumbled for a long time in the sand, the color chips off and what’s left is a shiny, pearlescent and delicately ridged white shell. After making molds from the shell we make wax copies, and add loops onto each one by one. They’re then cast in low-tarnish sterling silver before finally getting ground, filed and prepped, then added to the cascade of colourful, hand-wrapped swarovski crystals.
