These Little Fish pendants were crafted from abalone and mother of pearl shell, and would make a fun piece of jewelry for a child, or a playful Pisces person.
A thin shell laminate has been added to a much thicker resin base so these are lightweight but sturdy.
The beautiful blue-green dappled effect of the abalone on the body of the fish contrasts with the white mother of pearl shell head.
Made in Bali, Indonesia, they're about 50mm in length, and drilled with a 1.5mm hole for your finding.
This listing is for one piece only.

The 12th sign of the zodiac, Pisces is known as Mina in Bali where the prevailing religion is Hinduism.
In Hindu Vedic astrology, Pisces/Mina is one of the most auspicious signs.
The fish is a symbol of fertility, prosperity and regeneration and two fish clinging to each other's tail represent the balancing of two polarities.
Achieving balance in life and the universe is the goal of every Balinese and the purpose of the never-ending cycle of offerings they make throughout their lives.
Vishnu – known in Bali as Wisnu - is one of the principal deities of the Hindu trinity, and according to legend, he appeared on earth at the time of creation in the form of a tiny fish to save the world from a great flood.
Hindus believe it is an auspicious omen to see a fish at the beginning of any journey or important undertaking.
In Bahasa Indonesia, the term for little fish is “ikan kecil”. Ikan = fish. Kecil (pronounced kechil) = little.
“Chance is always powerful. Let your hook always be cast; in the pool where you least expect it, there will be fish.” Ovid
