From the intricately scrolled wings to the segmented tail, these dainty Balinese Abalone and Silver Dragonfly Earrings are handmade by Balinese silversmiths, who jewel the body with a cabochon of iridescent abalone.
Our Asian ethnological collection includes similar jewelry.
The thick inner shell of the marine gastropod abalone is composed of nacre, or mother-of-pearl. In many species this layer is highly iridescent, making it especially desirable for use in jewelry.
