Oyster Elegance - Trinket holders - 10 variations available

"Oyster Elegance" is an exquisite piece of upcycled art crafted from a discarded oyster shell. The artist employed a combination of gilding techniques and resin coating to enhance the natural beauty of the shell. Gold leaf was meticulously applied to the edges, providing a luxurious frame for the nacreous interior. The shell is adorned with an array of materials, including freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones, and metallic beads, strategically placed to complement the organic form of the oyster. The use of resin not only preserves the shell but also creates a smooth, glossy finish, highlighting the contrast between the natural and the ornate elements of the piece. Sizes vary from 5.5cm to 8.5cm

The artist, Janet Goh, draws inspiration from the concept of transformation and the hidden beauty within discarded objects. "Oyster Elegance" reflects her fascination with the ocean and its treasures, emphasizing the idea that beauty can be found in the most unexpected places. By upcycling an oyster shell, she aims to convey a message about sustainability and the potential for repurposing materials to create something entirely new and beautiful. The piece is a testament to the artist's belief in the power of art to reimagine and breathe new life into the overlooked and forgotten.
