Gold oyster pendant with fuchsia cord

The shell was found on a beach along the Venetian coast, and transformed by a local artisan who uses ancient gilding techniques to produce beautiful but sustainable jewelry. The gold leaf used in the process is made in Venice by the last artisan goldbeater in Venice.
