OOAK Hand Carved Abalone Butterfly
One of a kind hand carved abalone shell. A Friend of mine collects shells on the beaches of San Diego, from La Jolla shores to ocean beach. He started hand carving shapes out of the shells he finds. This one is a butterly, about 3” across.
strung on a 22” chain.
please let me know when you purchase if you’d like a different length chain.
Each piece takes about 3 hours to create, and the copper process takes 24+ hours to form.
We applied copper to the rim of the shell and added the jump rings so it can hang from a chain, either worn as a necklace or decorate your home. The back is also raw shell.
