What materials did you use? I have set this piece of Paua shell, also known as Abalone, in sterling silver. I hand selected this piece whilst I was in Kaikoura, in New Zealand. My partner then cut it into a circular cabochon for me. I have set the Paua in a sterling silver Viking knit bezel, which has created a pretty pattern around the edge. I have embellished the front of the pendant with a sterling silver Seahorse and tiny 2mm freshwater pearls. I have also secured a pearl around the edge of the shell, in each loop of the bezel. The pendant is 1 1/2" tall (including the bail) and 7/8" at it's widest point. The pendant hangs on a 17" sterling silver chain.

I love the design. Very inventive. You need to do a class on how to do the Viking knit bezel or write a pattern sheet. Just an idea. You may have already done this. Let me know.
