Blue Sandollar Necklace Giveaway

25 Nov, 2010 by in tera lynn child 51 comments

Our Etsy giveaway is inspired by the necklace Lily makes Quince in the book “Forgive My Fins” by Tera Lynn Childs. This handmade one of a kind necklace was donated by shop owner MermaidinCali. “I am a self taught artist and love to experiment with new materials. I have always been crafty and for many years my friends and family prospered from my handmade gifts. I thought is was time to see what the world thinks of my art and start a shop with Etsy. I hope you enjoy my work because it is all truly done with love.”

Description: Authentic pacific coast sand dollar pendant found in Southern California and dyed grayish blue. Unique and one of a kind and would make a great gift for yourself or a friend that loves jewelry or collecting shells. I love the simplicity of wearing something naturally beautiful and from the sea. As you can imagine the weight of the sand dollar is nearly nothing so you do not have a heavy pendant pulling at your neck. This sand dollar is adorned with a sterling silver plated medium sized bail, silver bead and 24” of suede cording.

When I was a little girl growing up in Massachusetts, I called sand dollars Mermaid Money. I had lived in various parts of San Diego since 1995 but it was not until we bought our house in 2004 in Imperial Beach that I started finding these wonderful shells on the beach. Fascinated by their beauty, I experimented for years and figured out a way to change their colors and a secret recipe to harden them and make them more durable. Although this sand dollar pendant is very durable it is not indestructible and care should be taken not to drop them on hard surfaces. Sand Dollar Measurements: Width- 2.6 inches; Height-2.6 inches
