This exquisite piece of jewellery captures the unique details of a large mussel shell, complete with barnacles, found on Porthmeor beach near the Tate in St Ives.
Crafted from high-quality sterling silver, this necklace retains all the interesting details of the shell, making it a true work of art. The fine sterling silver 18-inch chain perfectly complements the beauty of the shell, making it a versatile piece that can be dressed up or down.
Porthmeor is a popular sandy beach in St Ives, just a stone’s throw from the town centre. St Ives takes its name from an Irish princess and missionary, St Ia, who sailed from Ireland to Cornwall on a leaf in the 5th Century, according to legend. Since the early 1800s, artists have been drawn to St Ives to capture the essence of the area. World-renowned artists such as Barbara Hepworth, Bernard Leach, Ben Nicolson, Peter Lanyon, Patrick Heron, and Wilhelmina Bans-Graham all have strong links to the town.
The St Ives Mussel Shell with Barnacles Necklace includes free P&P within the UK, along with gift wrapping in a padded envelope and first-class postage.
