YOJ 2007 Week 18 - Netted abalone necklace

My friend Karen Hardy (thanks girlfriend!) sent me these great pieces of abalone a while back, and I was just waiting for the right inspiration to use them. It finally arrived! I set the abalone in a netted bezel similar to the Rhodochrosite Golden Necklace and the Lemon Quartz Pendant. While the technique is essentially the same, the materials are radically different: silver instead of goldfilled wire; irregular stones instead of faceted; animals instead of beads. Looks completely different!!! I *really* don't want to sell this one.... I want to keep it for myself... My eternal problem... not wanting to sell my goodies.
Abalone, sterling silver, colorado sunstone, labradorite.
