Abalone Shell Necklace

Abalone Shell Necklace


Abalone Shell Necklace

A sumptuous and rich necklace featuring stunning abalone or paua shell beads. The deep iridescent greens, blues, turquoise and purples change constantly with the light. They are a delight to work with – each bead is so unique and different. To offset their unique beauty I strung them using the floating bead technique where each chip is knotted individually into place to keep the design simple and to give the impression of floating in water. This lovely rich necklace in beautiful colours of the sea will delight and energise. It’s an ideal gift and coming in at under fifty euros is good value too.

    Abalone Shell Necklace

    I love abalone, or paua shell as it’s more commonly called in its native New Zealand, and these cute little square beads are of a very high standard indeed. They have a beautiful iridescent gloss and are intensely rich in colour – from dark sea green to rich turquoise to deep purple to silver white. Simply beautiful! No wonder they were treasured so highly by Maori craftspeople. I wanted to keep the design simple to best offset the beauty of the shells so strung them separately using the floating bead technique. This involves knotting each bead into place so they give the appearance of floating in water. I used a complimentary turquoise cord for strength and accent.

    This is a handmade piece of jewelry and each shell is unique and individual in its markings. That’s the beauty of working with natural materials – no two beads are ever the exact same. In a length that’s so easy to wear this simple necklace goes with so many outfits. Guaranteed to become one of your firm wardrobe favourites.

    The necklace measures 50cm or 20 inches and is finished with a gold plate toggle clasp and feathered cords that is my signature bohemian style. Comes gift wrapped with lovely box and ribbon all ready to gift or store.
