Abalone Sterling Silver and Leather Necklace


Abalone Sterling Silver and Leather Necklace - Abalone Shell - look at what Mother Nature created here!!  Stunning striations of colors - it is just mesmerizing!  I had to keep a beach theme going, so I drew and hand-cut a sand dollar out of sterling silver, hand riveted the hole, and wired this charm to the bottom of the pendant.  Three quarters of the Abalone cabochon have been captured in a "Fire/Flame" bezel.  I added two prong settings to which tiny little sea shells have been stamped, cut, and soldered to the top of each prong.

I kept the chain simple - a 2mm leather cord - so that all attention is drawn to the beautiful pendant. The necklace measures 23 1/2" in length, including the 1" handmade sterling silver extender chain, and includes a tiny pearl wrapped to the last link in this chain. A simple clasp has been forged from heavy gauge sterling silver.

All metals in this design are .925 Sterling Silver. 

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
