The Abalone Kids exemplify our efforts to raise consciousness with regard to abalone and appreciation of its value. By searching the rugged “Lost Coast” of Northern California over many years for fragments of rare red abalone that washed ashore, and designing award winning jewelry which captured the interest of the Smithsonian Institution, they have given abalone a unique designation in art to wear jewelry in the world.
