Blue abalone shell, wow this pieces is just stunning! the blue is, well so blue with shades of pink and purple. Then you have the darker blue lines and puddles which remind me of the sand at low tide. I thought little white  freshwater pearls would be perfect with this glorious piece of ‘shell artwork’ all mixed up with some shiny silver!

kyanite necklace

I bought this kyanite ‘slice’ because it looks so beautiful, I wasn’t really sure what I was going to do with it! I decided to set it in silver but it was a truly awkward shape so i added some keshi pearls to the setting. It looked pretty good so I then had to decide what next to do. I thought a double strand of silver chain,keshi pearl,apatite and faceted black onyx would look good but it needed something else?  12 strands of silver chain,apatite,keshi pearl,faceted black onyx and really gorgeous black opals, all handing from the pendant of the necklace, did I mention that it became a necklace?
