Ocean inspired jewellery

Gower mussels have been the inspiration my unique collection of silver necklaces and earrings. I have always been facinated by the beauty of the shells interior, which hosts a beautiful palette of pearlised blues and purples as well as the exterior of the shell where fine lines define the growth of the shell.
Mussel shell necklace with pink quartz, blue sodalite and real blue mussel shell. The blue mussel shell has been set in a thick silver case which rotates to reveal a stunning silver exterior hosting two silver barnacles. For more details please visit http://www.pa-pa.co.uk/oxich.cfm
A pod of common dolphins was spotted 100 yards off shore at LLangennith beach on saturday 27th June. To see fifteen or more so close to the shore is uncommon. Most of Gower dolphin sightings are off the Worm's Head at Rhosili where the currents meet and the depth falls to around 70 feet in some parts.

Silver dolphin necklace inspired bythe pod of dolphins seen on Gower. These playful mammals come into the bays of south Wales to rear their young during the summer months.
