Handcrafted vintage pendant features a large piece of abalone aka mother of pearl set inside a sterling silver snake frame.
The shell has beautiful coloring. Teals, blues, pinks, purple and greens just meld together to form a beautiful landscape. My pictures are not so good. The colors are really beautiful and the blues just did not get picked up by my camera.
Sterling silver stylized snake is quite charming. He or she is a nice snake – very nicely fashioned, too.
Snake's head rests upon the end section of tail. An applied raised design of smaller snakes or wiggly lines are present within a tapered raised frame.
It's hard to capture the true colors with a camera. That is why I have taken so many shots. Colors change when viewed with different lighting and also as you turn the piece.
Measures 2" x 1-1/4" and has a nice rise of just over 1/4".
