Iridescent of Abalone Shell

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

This piece of abalone shell is from New Zealand. Mom-in-law found it in her drawer and handed it over to me to play with. She said she has lots of them but can't locate them at the moment. Oh well, what a waste.

Here, the shell is wrapped simply with 22g stainless steel wire. Simple but very tight. At the back of the shell (or is it the front?), the wire is bend like a cross. Hmmm! a lot of crosses lately.
