Turitella Necklace


 A Turitella shell silver pendant necklace made on the Isle of Arran.

This silver turritella shell pendant is cast from a shell my children found on Pirnmill beach one sunny day.

As the tide retreats, the sea leaves us her ocean treasures on the shore

Turritella are a type of sea snail with tall spiral shells, a marine gastropod mollusk. With a tightly coiled shells, looking like an elongated cone. My children call it the 'unicorn horn' shell.

The name Turritella comes from the Latin word turritus meaning "turreted" or "towered".

Material - Sterling silver

Chain - 18 inch 

Dimensions -  25mm approx (not including bail)

My jewellery is individually hand-crafted or made in small batch production and hand-finished - this is reflected in the final finish of each piece. This means that it will not be the same as machine made or mass-produced jewellery. Instead, it gives each of my designs a special artisanal touch.
