A Note from the Writer
Please keep in mind that if you purchase any of the featured pins or brooches, all Abalone shell is unique and different. Therefore, the setting will be as shown, but the look of the colored shell will vary from piece to piece. Abalone shell is always beautiful, but I didn’t want you to have your heart set on the appearance of a particular piece of shell and receive something that didn’t have the same lines or color combination. It will be predestined by nature to be original.
