    That is magnificent, to echo your words! You have a knack for framing these pendant stones in just the right way to show them off.

    Love the pendant! Fabulous colors! Is there anything more gorgeous than a well colored abalone shell? Every time I see a really nice piece of abalone I buy it whether I need it then or not. I have a fairly good stash of abalone and I’ll just keep adding to it. You can never be too rich, too thin or have too much abalone! :D
