Girdled Snail Ornament


This Sterling Silver Girdled Snail Ornament was modelled on one of our native common garden snails. It is the perfect accompaniment to my little silver slug and is modelled to actual size.

In fact, I like pairing mine up with the little snail-loving hedgehog ornament… or is that a bit mean?!!


Inspiration for my Girdled Snail Lapel Pin

This little Girdled Snail Ornament was originally modelled to companion my Black Slug as a pair of quirky earrings (Slug Earrings – Sterling Silver Studs – Emma Keating Jewellery). The intended recipient was a lady who so loved snails and slugs that she calls herself the “Slug and Snail Appreciation Society” on Instagram. Well she certainly made me look at slugs in a different light. Her mother originally commissioned a pair of slugs – but then the slug-snail combo seemed the perfect mix.

As you probably know, I love modelling local species if I can – so this is just one of the common snails that you find in most British gardens. One of these days I am going to model one of the gloriously big garden snails to accompany this little fella… just as soon as I’ve worked out what the design should look like

If, like me, you have a soft spot for snails, this girdled snail ornament is also available as earrings, pendant, lapel pin or charm.
