~ Scallop Shell Earrings ~

Made from Fishing Gear
Found and Recycled in Cornwall


The perfect gift for an ocean lover – our Cornish Ocean Plastic Scallop Shells are transformed from blue dolly ropes (bundles of lost fishing line), lobster pot frames and white ropes we recover, turned into unique earrings that treasured on a pair of marine grade surgical steel hooks turn once un-recyclable rubbish into one-of-a-kind jewellery.

The scallop shell in Celtic and Cornish tradition is the sign of pilgrimage and spiritual rebirth- which originated in the Celtic Christians who travelled through Cornwall, via St Michaels Mount, departing from Mounts Bay across the sea to Santiago de Compostela. We loved the idea of using plastics which have already travelled across the oceans recreated into our Scallop pendants – truly as a symbol of travel & rebirth.

Please be aware as all our items are recovered after being gnarled in the sand and sea they often have distinctive small ocean-induced blemishes which are transferred during the making process which makes each pendant unique – so it will be slightly different from the photographs above – as we cannot recreate or control the exact mix of recovered nets & plastics that make any individual item. However, all our beads are checked multiple times by hand & made proudly of ocean plastics we have recovered by hand from beaches & waters of Cornwall.

All in the detail: 

  • Colour originates from the ocean plastics and/or recovered ghost nets – no dyes or nasties just pure cleaned ocean plastic
  • Pendant measures at 2.5cm high by 3.5cm wide
