Irma Guzman's Seashell Jewelry: Bold and Original (Caribe Collection Part 2)

The seashell pieces from our Caribe Collection are wonderfully handcrafted! We never thought of making seashell jewelry, but it all started on a trip we made to the South Padre Island in Texas, my husband and I were walking along the beach and came across a giant seashell... and I immediately fell in love with it, I thought, I could paint it and use it in my desk.  Later on, we found ourselves beachcombing and with a bag full of seashells and sand! It seems simple but it's so relaxing, besides we saw some interesting shapes and thought we could do something with those seashells, and this is the final result: 

Sea Treasure Necklace

We wanted our seashell pieces to be different, bold, innovative and unusual. We used real seashells that we handpicked, mussel shells (which we bought), coconut shell coins, seeds, suede cords, wood beads, and chains. Their aesthetic is tropical chic!

The Sea Treasure Necklace  will become your favorite piece in summer and will give you that WOW look! The mussel shell drops give a feeling of movement and the range of yellows and browns from one drop to the next provide a beautiful contrast with the gold seashells creating a harmonious color scheme.
