This large natural paua shell pendant necklace is a fine example of its kind - multi-coloured, iridescent, unique. It has the full range of blue & green (with some gold & pink) that paua abalone is known for, and those colours change as the shell moves - please look at all of the photos. I had to shoot some photos in lower light because the iridescence of this piece is quite strong.

Paua shell is the most colourful variety of abalone shell, found only in the waters around New Zealand. These colours are all natural - no dye has been used. (I did need to apply a few layers of shellac to a small patch on the back, which was a tiny bit rough, however) This shell is 3 1/2 inches (9 cm) long & would be even longer if it did not have a curve in it.

I wrapped this piece of paua with sterling silver, & strung it on an 18-inch (45 cm) silver-plated chain, which ends in a self-closing clasp. Self-closing clasps are much easier to close than regular lobster clasps, but are far more secure than toggles, so they make ideal jewellery for people with mobility & dexterity issues.

Sterling silver chains are also available for purchase separately: http://etsy.me/16uTgQ1

Unfortunately the size of this pendant means it cannot be shipped for my usual lower rates. It will arrive in a jewellery box to protect it.
