The scientific name for this type of shell is Strombus Canarius which is also known as the dog conch. An Indo-Pacific species found in India, Sri Lanka Melanesia, Australia, and southern Japan. With this shell being center cut, you get an interesting look at part of the inside of the shell. Wrapped in one of my favorite weaves, this design includes many copper beads and torch work. Handmade with love and dedication by Amanda’s Treasures.
HOW TO TAKE CARE OF COPPER WIRE JEWELRY
Over time your copper pieces will patina. Please use a jewelry cloth to lightly shine your pieces, please do not use liquid jewelry cleaners. You will notice that you can not reach every surface with the jewelry cloth, the areas that are left untouched by the cloth will stay darkened, this adds a more dimensional look to your piece. I would not recommend you sleep or swim with your jewelry. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
