What materials did you use? This necklace was inspired by the Rustic Limpets (scientific name Patella Rustica) you find clinging to the side of rock pools at the seaside. I have tried to capture the interesting structure of their shells using the viking knit technique to create a bezel setting for the stones and also to form a surround which connects each stone together. I have used Labradorite and Rhodonite stones, to reflect the colours in the shells and surrounding rock pools. I have arranged the central detail in an asymmetrical design to capture the chaotic ways of Mother Nature.

Quite an impressive art work especially with your rendition of settings for gems taken from the Limpets in the sea. Absolutely alluring!!!
