Over three bucks for THIS?
I love a good abalone or paua shell piece, but this wimpy teardrop-shaped shell pendant wasn't a good representative of how lovely these materials can be. That's the problem with shopping online--you can't select exactly what you like. To the credit of ArtBeads, they accept refunds, including shipping. So I WILL shop here again.
The pendant I got was noticeably dull in luster and color as compared to the one depicted online. I liked the uniformity of the shell.
Beautiful cut & color to these abalone beads & a terrific value! I've seen much smaller ones sell for more. Perfect for matching earrings or a solo pendant.
Always buy at least twice as many as you need, because at least half will be very plain. If you buy multiples you will get some nice ones , they are not very expensive
