Albert’s Abalone Brooch/Pendant is a proclamation of his all-abiding love for the sea and his tendency to use its natural products like shells, fossils, and ammonites in his jewelry. He encases his pieces in textured gold and pearls, crowning each bit of Mother Nature’s beauty and in turn creating a brilliant accessory for the wearer.
