The lovely colours of this gemstone chip necklace were put together by Jen. She used just one oblong double-holed Paua (New Zealand abalone shell) as her starting point. The oblong tile was only threaded through the top hole, giving her design an elegantly simple focal area.

Paua is prized because of its beautiful iridescent hues of purple, blue and black. So Jen's choice of amethyst, blue lace agate and snowflake obsidian gemstone chips was just right for this necklace. I liked how she picked what are bead caps and added it as the metallic contrasts resulting in a very different kind of design.
