Anomia shell & Bronze

Amonia is one of the beach treasures

I took another walk on the beach of Keraude at low tide to make some beachcombing . I found more anomias, this shell is really a wonder, a beach treasure . I especially like the upper part, the lid (on the right) which is very pearly but fragile, so it is necessary to consolidate it well with resin.
These anomia lids are flatter, which is handy but they also have a hole for the muscle which is used to fix them to the brackets
Some time ago I finished a pair of earrings with 2 elements that I made in silver coloured bronze mounted on anomia lids with dark grey mother-of-pearl with goldish touch. I held the whole thing with black polymer resin on which I painted with bronze varnish. I also finished 1 pendant of the same style with a pearly grey anomia lid

I design jewellery but I am mainly a painter. After my baccalaureate I studied drawing and painting at the Lycée Masséna in Nice and then at the Beaux Arts in Berlin (West) from which I graduated. In Berlin I also learned the enamel technique from a jeweller for whom I did repaired the enamels on Florentine jewellery. There I also painted miniatures on enamel and he framed in silver or gold.
I am now painting miniatures on enamel again and Imake their frames in bronze.
I usually work on commission and from time to time I create some that I sell on my painting site.
