Conch Shell Star

Price: $16.00
Item Number: 0045
Manufacturer: Drummer Cove Design
Manufacturer Part No: 0045
The Conch Shell Segment Star is 3 1/2 inches in diameter and weighs 1.4 ounces. It was created by taking an impression of an actual Conch Shell Segment, and then using the impression as a mold for a pewter casting.
Five copies of this segment were then cast and soldered together to form the star that you see. Then an impression of the combination was made so that a integral casting could be made of the finished piece. The casting is done using a high grade lead free pewter.

The technique of replicating the exact shape of sea creatures was developed by Jeff Mitchell, a pewter smith who lives in Wellfleet, Cape Cod. For an explanation of this technique see Jeff’s Website.
