The whole Hermit Crab Pin is Sterling Silver. The Crab is hand painted, leaving him traveling is a very shiny shell looks like natures version of an Airstream trailer. The Hermit Crab Pin measures 1-1/2" x 1".

How is the coloring done? After the piece has been hand cast, the sterling silver is sandblasted to produce a frosted white finish. A variety of oxidizing agents and inks are hand painted on to create the colorful effects. And finally the surface is sealed with an acrylic coating to protect it from tarnishing. Since each piece is hand painted please allow for slight variations in color tone and intensity.

As each piece is handcrafted, please allow 10 to 12 days before it will be available for shipping.
