MORPHIO: Snail Morph Heart Necklace
Got a favourite animal, or an animal lover in your life? Now you can choose from 15 different iridescent animal heart pendants that are handmade in the 1970s! Pictured here is the snail morph, looking rather adorable, if I say so myself! Each pendant changes colour from pink to blue to green as you move it, and comes on a very 90s style sterling silver ball chain necklace. These are rare vintage, so when they’re gone, they’re gone!
