This pair of shell cross earrings is made with a 10mm (approximate) chunk of abalone shell and genuine faceted Czech glass beads in a green peacock finish. It also has a very nice silver alloy cross charm and silver plated beads and findings. The earring hooks are silver plated. I've always loved abalone shell because of the way the colors in it seem to move when the light reflects on it. While the inner shell is alive with moving color, the back of the abalone shell is also shown, in a polished natural outer shell look. This pair of dangle earrings measures approximately 2 1/2" long.
