Welcome to the Help for Joplin Auction. For details on the who, what, when, and how please visit this post.
This hours item is:
What is your secret hope? Or, instead, do you have a secret wish, dream, goal, or joy? Is doesn’t even have to be a secret! I love these clamshell-type necklaces! On the top is a convex “shell” in the texture of your choice, and inside is the word or words *of your choice*. I hand-stamp each word onto a sterling silver disc, oxidize it to make the word black, polish the entire piece, and then use specialized tools to make each piece concave. I also hand-stamp each sterling silver top using different techniques and specialized texture tools, then I oxidize, polish, and make it convex. Each clamshell is then drilled and hung on an 18″ sterling silver chain.
Retail Value: $38
