Abalone And Green Beads – day 112

Posted on Apr 22, 2011 in 365 Paper Bead Creations | 3 comments

I chose teal olive shaped paper beads to be the backdrop for this beautiful abalone shell. I love the changing color of the shell that is also being picked up by the green and black swirls of the paper beads.


I love abalone shell, and the sheen and the play of colors that can only come from Mother Nature.


When we were doing the show, a lot of people mistake the beads as shells, they can look like shells or wood beads and to me that is great compliment 🙂



  1. omg I made one like this too haha for some reason no matter what the teal color goes so good with those pendants i love it

  2. What a beautiful combination. I love all shells and you really put them together very complimentary.

  3. what beautiful colors it has this abalone shell! it’s unexpected to associate with paper beads, but in the end, the marriage works great! it is a success!
