A stick shaped white dead coral and shells were hand picked from a beach in Okinawa, Japan. Hand textured and formed silver pieces and moonstones are combined with a real coral and shells to recreate a small part of the white beach as a brooch.

Dead coral and shells from a beach in Okinawa, Japan
Approx.70mm x 25mm x 15mm
Stones: 4mm diameter/ Shells: approx. 3-5mm diameters
I visited to Okinawa, Japan where has beautiful white beachs made from dead corals and their sands. I had picked up coral pieces from there and kept them in a box. I discovered them in my cabinet a couple years later and I realised they should have been shown as a part of the nature rather than staying in a box!
Since then I have been creating `White Coral Beach` collection and inspired from corals’ various unique textures, shapes and how they were originally gathering on the beach.
