Oh my gosh! is what you will say when you see this little delight. The Operculum shell in this pendant is the cutest thing ever ! The markings on it are guaranteed to make you smile over and over again. When I look at it, I see the face of a smiling Manatee looking back at me. The shell is bezel set and hand textured to perfectly match the shape of the Operculum. I can't stop smiling as I am writing this description. Every time I look away from the keyboard I see the happy face.

An Operculum is the trap door attached to the foot of a snail so the animal is protected inside it's shell. When the snails are at end of their life cycle, the door falls off and sometimes end up on the beaches in Baja, Mexico. This Operculum was a gift from the fishermen in Baja.

What a beautiful natural spiral: the symbol of new beginnings.
