You Can Make This

Abby Hook made Patella Rustica Necklace with:

  • This necklace was inspired by the Rustic Limpets (scientific name Patella Rustica) you find clinging to the side of rock pools at the seaside. I have tried to capture the interesting structure of their shells using the viking knit technique to create a bezel setting for the stones and also to form a surround which connects each stone together. I have used Labradorite and Rhodonite stones
  • to reflect the colours in the shells and surrounding rock pools. I have arranged the central detail in an asymmetrical design to capture the chaotic ways of Mother Nature.
