Hammershell pieces in Night Blue
Hammer Shells have a narrow and elongated hammer-shaped outline. Their pearlescent inside lends itself ideally to the art of inlay. These shells are a bi-product of the South East Asian Seafood Industry. Instead of discarding them, we encourage their collection and cleaning for inlay. The shells are inlaid and left unsealed so that their natural colour is unspoiled. We enhance the beauty of the shells by various methods; selecting for colour, cutting in different shapes, cracking and cutting.
