Abalone Heaven

I can't say I made these beautiful abalone (and various semi-precious stones) necklaces, but I certainly can say they stopped me in my tracks with their stunning colors and textures. There's something about abalone that feels rich, substantial, luscious, to me. I want to lie down and roll around in piles of abalone beads and pendants - it's my treasure!

These necklaces were made by Louise Miranda Ramirez, my sister, Chair of the Esselen Nation, and her grand-daughter Alex.

Thank you for bringing this beauty and power into the world, Louise and Alex. Mislayaya Kolo.
