Each of these beautiful pendants are inspired by tide pools and are made with marine flora that was attached to garbage that I personally cleaned up from the beach. While I throw most of the garbage away, a small collection is taken home and sorted for art. And in that garbage, there are always pieces of this beautiful marine life hiding in the socks and straws and plastics. I pull all of that aside and sun dry it, and then I use tweezers and bio resin to build these little wearable tide pools.
This small circle pendant comes by itself (if you have your own chain) or a chain can be purchased for it when you put it in your cart.
Due to the handmade nature of each piece and the natural materials used, slight differences in appearance should be expected. Colors may look different in person than they appear on screen.
This listing is for one pendant, only (shown in the first 6 photos). All other photos are included for size and material reference.
Metals are plated nickel-free with 24k gold or .999 fine silver. A secondary process of oxidization provides the aged look to the metals.
These are considered costume jewelry and should be kept in dry areas when not being worn (so don't keep them in the bathroom or kitchen, don't go swimming in them, don't wear them while dancing in the rain, etc.)
Spraying chemicals on or near costume jewelry may speed up the "antiquing" of metal - for instance, perfumes, hair spray, make-up setting sprays.
The natural materials in these pendants was sourced from trash collected during beach and street clean-ups. A portion of our profits are donated to environmental conservation efforts. The sale of these pieces also helps to fund the direct clean-up of thousands of pieces and pounds of plastic trash, as well as helping to fund environmental education efforts.
IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFORMATION:
We ship every Friday. All items purchased before 12:00 PM central time on Tuesday afternoon are shipped that Friday. All items purchased after 12 noon (central time) on Tuesday will ship by the next Friday (approximately 10 business days later).
International shipping starts at $15. Because we are currently unable to calculate a shipping price for every single location in the world, international shipping works as follows: There is a $15 shipping charge for international orders. Once your order is received, we will calculate shipping based on your exact location. If the actual shipping charge is within $1.00 of the $15, we will ship your item as is. If the shipping charge is more than $1 more or less than the $15 shipping charge, we will refund the difference OR send an invoice for the remainder due. If you do not agree with the updated shipping charge, we will glady refund your order. We are unfortunately not able to offer insurance or tracking on international shipments. While we are excited about being able to offer international shipping, we know that once a package leaves our country, it's completely out of our hands. Please keep that in mind when ordering.
Small Tidepool Pendant in Gold Circle
Each pendant is made with natural materials, metal and bio resin. As with all jewelry, these pieces should not be worn in water. When not being worn, pieces should be stored in a dark, cool place, away from light and air exposure. These are not out of the ordinary storage solutions, but rather, best practices for all jewelry pieces.
