Weaving a spell with abalone shell

I imagine that a magical woodland creature would wear an adornment with shapes taken from the natural world. Snippets of beetle wing here, a tree seed there and some little curling antennae. Such is the whimsy of an elfin jeweller.

I'm pleased that my finished piece turned out pretty much like my original sketch, although I did turn round the side elements. Little changes and tweaks always suggest themselves as work progresses. That's all part of the magic.
