Raspberry Oyster Shell Necklace
This necklace features the following unique materials:
- Genuine oyster shell pendant, handpaiinted with gold leaf paint and using a decoupage technique.
- Recycled glass beads, handmade by artisans in the West African country of Ghana. Each bead is individually handcrafted through a traditional process passed down from generation to generation. The steps involve crushing glass into tiny pieces, placing it in a mold, and then heating the crushed glass at high temperatures in a clay oven. Different types of glass are used including old cola bottles, broken tiles and windows, and other types of repurposed glass.
- Recycled sea glass beads from the island of Java. These unique aqua color beads have been fashioned so that they look like pieces of rock candy crystal! Unique translucence lets light pass through.
