I love abalone shell – and I love pearls… and in this necklace I’ve brought the two beautiful “sea creatures” together. The colours of the abalone ranges from browns and gold to greens, blues and violet. The gorgeous iridescent shell looks stunning surrounded by white pearls – I’ve used small, slightly oval pearls and pearl “buttons” (about 8mm). The abalone pendant is 2x3cm. I’ve used a sterling silver extension chain at the back and attached an abalone drop, adding detail. The necklace – which would be perfect for a beach wedding – measures about 18-19 inches (46-49 cms). Matching earrings are available.
