Ear shells. Sea ears. Muttonfish. Muttonshells. Such low-key, unassuming names belie the glimmer and iridescence of the glamorous, ear-shaped abalone shell. Its painterly palette of intense bright blues, peacock greens, dreamy creams, off-whites, sugary pinks and pastel purples set in textured tentacle gold plated waves has most definitely been an inspiration for Isharya’s gorgeous Abalone Tentacle cuff. I guess it’s also the main reason why I got attracted myself to this piece. A beautiful abalone oval framed by goldtone metal. So good. A pretty design for an amazing wrist-party on its own.
