He's the king of prawns and we love his tickly moustaches! Crafted by Materia Rica from laser-cut walnut, and hand painted, King Prawn comes from Marta and Joan's Seaside range, inspired by white sails on the horizon and tiptoeing in the salty water.


The pendant measures 50mm by 55mm and the chain length is 76cm.


We met Marta and Joan at a gift fair in London and immediately fell in love with their jewellery. It's easy to wear, cleverly designed and really distinctive.


Walnut wood is sourced responsibly in the UK using only FSC approved suppliers. All fixings are produced in the Balearic Islands, are gold-plated brass, nickel-free and anti-allergenic. Packaging is 100% recyclable.

  • Materia Rica are Marta and Joan, who first met in East London where Marta was an artist and Joan ran a laser cutting company. Together they began to transform Marta's illustrations into small works of art to wear, which Marta sold at markets in London.

    In 2014 Marta and Joan set sail for the Mediterranean and founded the Materia Rica brand… so the ideas born in Shoreditch are now realised in Barcelona.
