Kauai Sunrise Shell Pendant #1
I created this handmade piece of jewelry by beading gold coated Japanese glass beads around a Kauai sunrise shell. Sunrise shells are indigenous to Hawaii and are a type of scallop called Langford’s Pectin, which are a delicacy to local octopus. They are loved for their colors and rarity, are considered a gemstone of Hawaii, and were worn by royalty in the original Hawaiian Kingdom.
The shell is 1 1/4 inches in diameter and is finished on the back with Ultrasuede for maximum comfort and style. This does not include a chain. The bail is 4 mm And made from 14 karat gold filled wire.
