Abalone Queen is unique one-of-a-kind jewelry influenced by qualities of structure, color, shape, texture, size and iridescence. Continually inspired to turn treasures polished smooth by the ocean into wearable works of art, I source my shells by beach combing the Mendocino and Sonoma Coasts. Each piece is of jewelry is individually created around the shells being used. Designed to last I gather, sort, drill and wire- wrap abalone and shells combined with beach glass, gem stones and 14k gold, 14k gold fill and sterling silver wire. With no 2 pieces alike the result is like a small wearable sculpture.
I love the process that brings me to a completed necklace or pair of earrings knowing that Abalone Queen jewelry will feel as if you are wearing the ocean.
