This handmade necklace features an abalone cabochon bezel set in sterling silver, with two different sizes of beaded wire detail around the edge of the piece. One half circle loop on the back holds the pendant to the 18" sterling silver 1.6mm wheat chain that fastens with a lobster clasp. The back of the bezel has been cut out to expose the mother of pearl appearance of the back of the cabochon.
The pendant portion of the necklace measures just under 2" (50mm) in height, and about 1 1/2" (44mm) in width.

I have always been fascinated by the ocean and the beach, and many of my fondest memories are of my childhood growing up near the coast of Maine. Due to my career as a web designer, I now live closer to Lake Erie (which surprisingly looks like a sea it’s that big) but I feel the calling of coastal life now more than ever.
My collection of jewelry and accessories is inspired by my favorite beaches of this great country. The sea/beach glass in each one of my designs can be traced to a specific coastal region, and primarily features glass that I have either hand-picked or sourced myself (aka friends and family who also enjoy beach combing). Each piece containing glass is specified as containing sea or beach glass in the design details, referring to the regions in which the glass was sourced: beach glass is from the Great Lakes region, and sea glass is from the ocean.
