    Long 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 -and variation – 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, but sophisticated at the same time, so I combined their rich greens and purples with tiny 24 Carat gold seed beads. These come in a variety of shades and finishes – light, dark, yellow, matte, shiny. I left the ends of the turquoise cords frayed as I love the handmade, bohemian look it evokes. I like to wear this necklace with a simple black polo or grey tee for casual daytime elegance.

    This is a handmade piece of jewelry and each shell is unique and individual in its markings so your necklace may vary slightly from the photograph. That’s the beauty of working by hand with natural materials – no two pieces are ever the exact same.

    The necklace measures 90cm or 34 inches long and slips over your head so is very easy to wear. I guarantee this necklace will fast become one of your top wardrobe favourites as it goes with just about everything. Comes gift wrapped with lovely box and ribbon all ready to gift or store.
