These earrings are made from the shells I’ve collected while walking along along the beaches of eastern North Carolina. After forming the hooks and jump rings from sterling silver or copper wire, I choose a matching pair of shells from my collection. I very carefully saw off any rough edges from the shells and then thread the shells onto the wire so that they hang as evenly as possible. It sometimes takes a few tries, but I eventually come up with a beautiful and unique set of earrings. I absolutely love making each pair and I hope that whoever wears them will enjoy them just as much!
