Abalone



 

I have an limited supply of red abalone from Northern California. This is abalone I have hand collected by climbing down cliffs on extremely low tides in Mendocino, CA. It is dangerous and not for the faint of heart.

I collect only the finest pieces that have washed up on the rocky shores or been lodged in the rock crevasses under the headlands. I then tumble the pieces in large vibratory tumblers with walnut shells to achieve an even luster.  

You will also find my local atlantic surf clam and quahog shell necklaces in this collection
