Item details

Set of 24 OR 100 assorted SUPER TINY abalone shells for arts and craft projects, beach weddings, scrap booking, or jewelry making. Sizes range from 1/4" to about 3/4". Ideal for earrings, bracelets, anklets, necklaces, or other shell crafts! Inside is the colorful abalone pearlized coating, outside is a natural brown color (could be painted silver or gold).

NOTE: These are shipped in bubble wrap in a 4" box to ensure they are not broken during shipping.

Customer Rosemarie Imoto sent a photo of her beautiful Christmas tree she made with these abalone shells! See photo #5.

These abalone shells came from the Abalone Farm in Kona Hawaii, where they farm abalone meat for overseas sales. Guess these little ones didn't make the cut, but they're perfect for jewelry and crafts - we used them on these gorgeous crosses:

Lots of FUN uses!

♥~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ♥Symbolism♥ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~♥
Abalone embodies all the aspects of the water element including love, beauty, gentleness, caring, comfort, peacefulness, delight and solace. Abalone is useful for calming emotional situations and is very soothing to the mind, body, and spirit. Abalone promotes cooperation and is associated with all the Chakra energies. In particular, it seems to work the best on the Solar Plexus Chakra, stimulating the 'gut feeling' and internal intuition. Abalone is especially good for the Heart Chakra, as it gently clears the heart of fear, sorrow and negative emotions. Abalone promotes intuitive energy to stimulate psychic development and intuition through the Third Eye Chakra. Intimately connected to the sea - represents the tides of emotions, and an easy flow of feelings and sensitivities to others. Provides a connection to family and harmony in relationships.

Learned from a Etsy customer, Native American's use to put a abalone shell on graves. So these tiny ones are perfect for California Mission projects!


FAQs

Plating is gold or silver over a base metal (usually copper). It is not solid gold or silver. Gold/silver plated jewelry is less expensive but just as lovely. Do not wear gold or silver plated jewelry swimming in a swimming pool, ocean, lake/river. As natural (and manmade) chemical particles can deteriorate the gold/silver plating. Silver is notorious for tarnishing when exposed to water, sweat, soaps, perfumes, and body oils. If your silver tarnishes easiest solution is to use a dab of toothpaste (any kind works) and GENTLY rub it between your fingers to remove the buildup/tarnish, rinse in warm water, towel dry. Harsh chemicals like silver cleaners or rubbing to hard will ruin the silver plating.

I work from a small art studio on my property in Hilo Hawaii. I make all my jewelry by hand. Materials are sourced from all over the world.

Wholesale is available, but some pieces are limited quantities. Please convo me if you wish to have Haole Girl Haiku jewelry in your shop. Note, I do not do drop shipping - you must have a brick and mortar store.

All necklaces, earrings, and bracelets come in a gift box with a bow. Each box arrives with white tissue paper so all orders look like a gift. Gift cards and notes are free, just let me know in the comments box you'd like one and what you'd like it to say. If you want the gift to go directly to the person, EDIT the ship to address at checkout, it's that simple!
