I splurged a while back on some abalone shell beads from Jewelry Supply Company.
 Was about $12 for 40 beads. I love abalone shells! Especially when they have a really blue hue.

These have more of a brown-natural hue.

But I ended up making the following set with glass faux pearls!

Necklace:
   

Bracelet
 

Earrings
 

The Set

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Very pretty- I really love the shell beads.  I like the contrast between the shapes too.

I like the brownish hue in there.  It gives them more of an earthy look.  Nice work.
