This double abalone pendant sits on a silken cord, wound with thread and tiny sterling silver beads. The abalone pieces used for these necklaces are vintage and untreated, allowing for slight variations in pattern and color, and making each piece one of a kind. Despite being untreated, the shell has a beautiful natural shine and luster. The shell piece is lightweight and measures 1.5 inches in diameter. The leather cord is 26 inches long and adjustable with a bead at the back.
