abalone necklace

This necklace is made of seven natural abalone shell chips, connected wire jumprings on a silver chain. It is incredibly lightweight, like you're wearing nothing at all. The chips are two sided: one side has darker blues, greens, purples, and blacks, with a pockmarked texture. The other side is smooth, with lighter colors, whites, lavenders, browns, and greens. Though of course both sides are iridescent and so reflect a bit of a rainbow, depending on the light.

These photographs were all taken in natural light.

Length: about 18 inches
