Meerschaum Reliquary Kit

14.00

Meerschaum means “Sea Foam” in German. Clumps can actually be found floating on the Black Sea hence the name. Soft white clay formed by fossilized shells of sea creatures that descended to the ocean floor millions of years ago. Easily carved it has been a medium of artists for centuries, mainly reliquary, incense burners and ornamental pipes. Our RELICS & ARTIFACTS® Resin Craft Blank kit contains the locket (taken from a mid 1800’s piece in which the carving had broken away) sweet Madonna and Child statue, Maiden Cameo (taken from a masterfully carved Antique Roman Lava Cameo) and a Winged Cherub grasping a Dolphin. Design this piece to fit your style! Display in an easel on a desktop, put into a larger frame for the wall, adhere to our Ostensorium to create a Magnificent Shrine or even turn into a necklace.

As with all our RELICS & ARTIFACTS® craft blanks these pieces are modular meant to mix and match so you can create custom unique designs of your own.

Measures Locket 2 3/4” tall x 2 1/8” wide. Maiden Cameo 1 7/8” tall x 1 3/8” wide. Madonna and Child 2 1/8” tall x 7/8” wide. Winged Cherub 1 7/8” tall x 1 1/2” wide.
