bone turtle pendant with paua shell inlays
Aw, I love the design it's so cute. Really looks just lovely. Love the choice of materials too, just matches it well thematically and visually.
My little sister would LOVE this!
love love it! turtles are so special and the bone looks like white chocolate
That's beautiful, and I love mother of pearl!
thanx,the inlay is like a type of mother of pearl,which i use also,its called "Paua" shell,a New Zealand strain of abalone,very tasty shellfish and has a beautiful and stikingly colourful shell,its made to go with bone i reckon.the Maori people used to use it in their bone fish hooks as a lure,today the shell is used a lot for jewellery making and they are also farming paua the same way they do with oysters for pearls,which have the same colour as the shell and are also very expensive
wow O_o so pretty
