Iridescent Abalone Shell, formed into a cabochon, combined with a radiant symbol, a drop of Pink Pearl, make for a unique ode to the beauty of summer captured in a Necklace.
Teresa combined some of her favorites in this piece: gorgeous shell art naturally beautiful, from the sea, the beautiful radiating pattern of sunflowers from the meadow, pink pearls collected from a river. A unique combination artistically expressed, executed with fine craftmanship, the hallmarks of T and Brie adornments.
The Necklace is crafted on a 17" long thin Sterling Rolo Chain, with a petite oval Lobster Claw style clasp beaded onto the chain with pink pearls, for a back that calls for a second look.
"Abalone Shell, ours, sustainably harvested by a California Aquaculture Farm, has a shifting iridescence that has called to me for a long time. For many indigenous cultures the meat of the shell was a prized meal and the shell kept for it's inherent beauty and reflection of the mysteries of the oceans of the world. The hues are unbelievably beautiful, I find they complement our charcoal grey Sterling Patina very well."-Teresa
