Hermit Crab Bottle Opener| Brass
Hermit Crab Bottle Opener
This item's unique design comes from the hermit crab. These strange and beautiful creatures live in muddy seabeds, on land in tree caves, and under rocky ledges. They have hard pincers but soft middles with no outward protection. Because of this, they use their hooked tails to hold and wear shells they find that are of an appropriate size. They live for up to 70 years and can get over 12 inches long!
The biggest issue of the production process was combining the elements that made the outward appearance of the hermit crab in a way that also made a functional bottle opener. We kept adjusting the angle of the crab's two cheeks and the snap of the conch. Ultimately, it took three months to complete this unique product.
The body of the hermit crab and the starfish are copper, and the conch is bronze. To make it look more realistic, we made its eyes out of sterling silver. Because of the different melting points of the different metals, it was a very challenging piece to craft. We hope we have done so in a way that has made this product a practical tool and a unique and brilliant work of art.
