Finally Finished

Another Abalone Pendant

I started on this pendant long ago. With the new bench all set up, I finally pulled it off the back burner. I assembled the parts while waiting for a couple of other items to go through the pickle process. Nice to have space enough to work on more than one piece at a time!

I wish I could find a way to light abalone to really show off the colors. This shot comes pretty close but still misses the flashes of pink. I'm not as happy with some of the others I shot for my etsy shop.

I really like the way that mother-of-pearl triangle at the bottome of the abalone plays off the moonstone.

There is a gap behind the moonstone to allow threading a chain or thong to wear the piece.
