I love paua/abalone shells for making jewelry. Since being in
California it seems like it should be the state shell.(isn't) This
is a beautiful take on that look.
Pretty but not what I expected
It's pretty, but I can't use it for what I wanted because the middle is black resin, which is obvious, and interrupts the flow of the necklace. I had already ordered a different option just in case, so I have what I need for my project. I'll have to use this for something else. Pretty except for the sides.
I will have to order more of these because everyone is in love with the Puau Shell Pendants from Artbeads. If you have not worked with these, you do not know what you are missing.
