Solid recycled Sterling Silver earrings cast from an actual Paua (Abalone) shell. The curves and intricate detail of this iconic New Zealand shell are beautifully captured in this handcrafted design.
Note: no cute little baby pauas were harmed in the making of these earrings, they are cast from a mould taken from a shell found on the beach!
Baby Paua Studs: 13mm (0.5in)
While they’re are known as ‘abalone’ in other countries, larger pāua can mostly be found in the fresh, cold seas of the lower North Island, South Island, Chatham Island and Stewart Island. They are caught by free-diving.
Where is it made? Takaka!
