I've been collecting seashells for as long as I can remember. From east to west, coast to coast, and shore to shore, I always find a treasure to keep, and adore.

Abalone Seashell Necklace

A couple of years ago I made a double layer glass pearl necklace, before my Etsy shop was just shells. It received many favorites, but never sold. It's one of the few things I didn't take apart, but I didn't add it to my personal collection either. It has just sat in a plastic zip close jewelry bag in a drawer in my craft room. 

I just happened to come across some beautiful abalone shells with this exact shade of green in them. In my mind I saw this necklace remade.


Until I started playing around with abalone shells, I had no idea they came in such a wide variety of shapes and colors.



I am very happy with this necklace, and I made earrings to match the dangle I added to the shell.


Dainty little earrings!

I'm going to love having this in my shop...for however long it takes it to sell.

I think I like the new look better than the old!

What do you think?

That shell was just made to go with those pearls. The colors are stunning!

Beautiful. I guess the necklace was just waiting for the right shell to complete it!

This is stunning and I'm sure the colors are even more beautiful up close! I love the variations of color in an Abalone shell! This is perfect! Enjoy your day! Sweet hugs!

What a nice piece! I'm glad you brought it out from storage. It's too pretty to be hidden away.
