Making the Shell Ring


Long before sea glass became a thing, the ancient beachcombers of the Pacific Islands often adorned themselves with shells. Shell jewelry is still a popular choice in the islands and there are many local carvers who do beautiful work with them. Here on Guam, there aren't very many silversmiths so here is to marrying the ancient CHamoru's choice of adornment with shells and pairing it with precious metals like silver to make wearable art that can last for generations.

The process: There are still many steps involved that weren't captured on video because we're still navigating this whole video editing thing. But we hope these little snippets help you get an idea as to what goes into making your ring.
