Ah, the natural beauty of paua shell! (species name is Haliotis Iris).

I'm always fascinated with the patterns and colours and these beauties have been tumbled to a satin finish by my supplier in New Zealand, which shows their colours off to perfection.

It is adjustable from tight choker length to quite long - the last photo shows the necklace being worn at the longest length.

As there are no metal bits, those sensitive to metal can confidently wear this without worrying about allergic reactions.

For an indication of measurement, the length of the middle shell is approximately 2 1/8" (5.4 cm) from top to bottom, and 1 1/2" wide (3.8 cms)across at the widest points.

I have used 5 shells, knotted with durable, smooth cotton cord approx 1mm thick, then I have used lovely little shiny beads in a complimentary colour - bluish/purplish cubes.

How it works:

Simply place the necklace over your head (as there is no clasp as such).

Take both loose ends and pull gently and evenly until the desired length has been reached.

To loosen, just slide the toggle (shown in the photo) or gently pull the sides apart. Dead easy!

Please convo me with any questions or if you would like extra photos.

Thanks for visiting KillerJewels !
