These cute cockle shell earrings are the perfect beach accessory.  Take the spirit of the sea with you wherever you go.

Cockle shells are abundant all over New Zealand, but finding a matching pair on the beach is a rare find! All of my shells are hand-picked by me (or my husband) while we're out beachcombing, and only completely empty shells are collected. Even though they were empty when picked up, the shells have been thoroughly soaked and cleaned before being treated with a clear coat of acrylic to enhance and protect the natural colours.

All holes have been carefully hand-drilled, and the earrings assembled with love. These particular shells were discovered on a beach near Kerikeri in August 2019, and have been accented with grey miracle beads and silver findings.

Shells: approximately 2cm by 2cm (height x width)
Earring drop: 4.7cm (from top of ear wire to bottom of shell)
Ear wires: Platinum Shepherd hooks

The colour, pattern and edge on each of the earrings may differ slightly due to natural variations in the shell, but they are a matching pair (they were still attached to each other when found) and are very similar in shape, colour and size, as seen in the photos.

These earrings are a unique set, as no two cockles will ever have the exact same colour, shape or pattern.
