Anomiidae go by several names, among them jingle shells, saddle oysters and Mermaids Toenails.  These are extremely thin, translucent paper-like shells.  The shell itself follows the shape of the boject it lays on, usually a rock or the large shell of another creature.  While the meat inside is basically inedible, there are industrial uses such as the manufacture of glue, paint, and shellac.

Hand patinaed bronze with gold detail.  

Handmade in the USA

The Michael Michaud Jewellery Collection, designed by Michael Michaud, is a world renowned collection of botanical jewellery. It captures the beauty and exquisite detail of nature using soft patinas on bronze accented with pearls, beads, coral and stones.
