This unique mosaic pendant is better looking than in pictures. Designed and handcrafted in the state of Hidalgo, Mexico, where artisans traditionally have used small pieces of embedded abalone shell to adorn their handicrafts with flowers, trees, and birds – from wood boxes, trays, jewelry boxes, pottery, vases, and jewelry – the younger generation of artisans and designers are trying to keep this tradition alive by stylizing their ancient crafts to meet today’s trends. And this fusion of traditional and contemporary techniques and designs are captured on this beautiful and lovely mosaic abalone sphere. I have only one piece in this darker blueish color, which goes very nicely with a pair of jeans and a black top.
