Gower cockle shell necklace made by Gower silversmith Pa-pa in the workshop by the sea. Cockle shells  have been harvested for food on Gower for hundreds of years. The women were sent out to work on the North Gower marsh to pick the cockles with rakes and riddles to find the shells buried in the sand at the low tide mark, while the men were at work in the coal mines in South Wales. 

This is a unique solid silver double sided cockle shell is formed in thick silver and not a coated or dipped shell.

6-8mm real white pearl .

 Cockle measuring approx 1cm x 1cm wide on a solid silver chain
