On the following web pages you may discover the different steps taken in our workshop in order to make a shell or snail into a piece of jewelry.
First, the shell or snail must be opened and the workpiece needed is sawed out. Then the outer rims are coarsely sanded and the piece of jewelry is molded. After that edges are finely sanded and polished until the surface is smooth, even and sleek. As a last step a hole is drilled into the shell, thus preparing the piece of jewelry for hanging it up as an earring, pendant, et cetera.
