"We're gonna need a bigger boat."

What kind of a monster did this tooth come from? It's a real shark tooth that has been electroformed it on back, top and sides in copper to create a fabulous necklace that's sure to get you lots of compliments!

I've added a glowing rainbow moonstone to the center of the piece.

The bail is wire wrapped in copper, and there are two sturdy rings connecting it to the necklace.

Tooth is approx. 2.5"H and comes on a 16"L rosary style chain with amazonite beads and a hook and loop clasp.

Otodus is an extinct genus of mackerel shark which lived from the Paleocene to the Miocene epoch. The name Otodus comes from Ancient Greek ὠτ (ōt, meaning "ear") and ὀδούς (odoús, meaning "tooth") – thus, "ear-shaped tooth"

--------------------------
Electroforming is a unique process of combining chemistry and alchemy to take natural objects and plate them in copper. It can take up to three days to create a single piece. Each piece has been given a dark patina and good old fashioned polishing with steel wool. My work has been clear coated to halt the oxidation process and to keep your skin from turning green. Over time, the copper on your piece may need a coating of clear nail polish to continue to keep the oxidation to a minimum.

Each piece is made by me in my studio right here in northwest Indiana, and is one-of-a-kind. The stones I use spend time under moonlight for cleansing before I work with them. I choose my materials very carefully for quality and provenance, including cruelty-free and eco-harvesting. All purchases come carefully packaged and ready for gift-giving!

Sincerely, your Stone Sister,
