A stunning abalone shell is the focal point of this one-of-a-kind necklace. This is a unique and artsy piece - and will make a bold, striking statement. The abalone shell has incredible shimmery colors of blue, green and silver - along with subtle iridescent hues of purple and pink. It has a great organic shape and a beautiful "ridge", which inspired my creation for the piece.

I designed the shape of the silver to flow with the shape of the shell. I sawed it out of solid sterling silver sheet and then created the texture by hammering the metal. The silver was given a soft charcoal patina to enhance the detail. Turquoise and abalone nuggets were stacked on sterling silver wire, and then added to rest against the ridge in the shell.

MEASUREMENTS: The pendant measures 3-3/8” in length and 1-5/8" in width (at widest point). It is signed on the back with my initials and sterling stamp.

***** CHAIN OPTIONS: You can chose whether you want this pendant WITH OR WITHOUT the chain.

If you select the "With Sterling Chain" option, it will come on the chain that is featured in the photos - which is a 16" solid sterling silver snake chain with lobster claw closure.
