Earth Shell Necklace

I like mixing natural and synthetic elements...

I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with this large shell pendant. It is bold and needed something that could support the scale without overpowering it.

I knew I didn't want it to be all natural and obvious...but then I found these vintage, faceted, slate colored, plastic beads and it hit me.They look old and a little maybe they were discovered in some sunken treasure and the color was perfect.

They had an interesting shape and the translucent quality gave them depth.I thought they were big enough to work with the pendant but still looked light and airy.

A nice frame to highlight a natural work of art.
