Abalone beads come from mollusk shells (marine snails) and are iridescent — when viewed from different angles, Abalone has an ever-changing palette of vibrant colors in purple, blue, green, silver, and pink. The presence of nacre in the shell creates a showy rainbow of colors. Abalone is also known as mother-of-pearl.
With its luminous glow, it’s easy to understand why Abalone has been used for millennials in making decorative arts and is especially popular in beading and jewelry making — choosing Abalone beads for any beading project results in a stunning effect that turns heads!
Besides feeling a direct connection to the ocean, wearing Abalone produces feelings of peace and calmness and can transform negative energy into positive energy.
