Silver Abalone Shells are cut by master cutters in the Pacific region to a thickness of 1/2mm and then adhered to a very sticky 3M backing. The sheet of shell is cut with a laser so it EXACTLY wraps around a specific pen tube. Each sheet of Silver Abalone will make two (2) single barrel pens or one (1) two barrel pen.
Simply cut the sheet with a pair of scissors to length, remove the 3m backing and carefully place onto a painted tube and cast it in your favorite casting material.
The pens shown are not using a 3/8" tube - they are to demonstrate what the Silver Abalone will look like on other pens!
NOTE: No two shell pieces will ever be the same - the way Mother Nature intended!
