A solid sterling silver cockle shell sand cast by hand in my studio. I used a natural shell found on the beach during a trip to Bamburgh in Northumberland and created a mould to cast the fragile shell into a more robust piece that can be worn on every adventure. No two are ever the same due to the handmade nature, just like no two shells are ever the same in the ocean.
It has long been a dream of mine to capture these organic finds in silver form, exalting their beauty from beachcombing trinkets to timeless adornments.
Cockles evoke memories of beachcombing and seafood treats from fish stalls after a long day of soaking in the sea air. We've all heard the phrase "it warms my cockles", a way to express being heart warmed by something, well one theory behind its origins is the heart shape of a cockle shell. I see them as little ocean hearts with beautiful detailing to cherish.
