Whelk Shell Studs Gold

Regular price $150.00 $0.00

Studs measure 1/2"W x 1"L.

14kt Gold Vermeil over Sterling Silver.

These studs were hand-carved in wax, using the texture of a piece of a lightening whelk shell, or sea snail, found on the Central Coast of California.

The lightening whelk has been used as a metaphor of fire/sun and purification/continuity in ancient cultures because of it's intricate internal spiral shape.
