Adding a metal finish to a shell pendant

A friend has a beautiful shell that would make an excellent pendant, on a D ring. But the shell is fragile and needs wrapping on the edges to make it last.

Would she use a coil or a frame or solder to make a sturdy outline for the shell. Its shape is irregular.

Thanks for your help!
