This Oyster Shell Necklace consists of black wooden beads, gold wooden spacer beads and a natural Oyster Shell with gold gilded edges and back. The necklace measures 34" long and the oyster shell measures 2.5"-4" long. One side features the natural shell color with a gold, gilded side and the other side is painted with black designs. These shells are drilled and sanded to the best of our ability to try to avoid any sharp edges or barnacles. Please note these shells come from the coast of NC and are naturally occurring. Therefore, they may vary in size, shape and weight.
