Some laserbeans we have grown
Fine Engraved New Zealand Paua (Abalone) Shell Jewellery
We are excited to get our hands on some New Zealand Paua shell and we have experimented in engraving on them to make our jewellery range.
A beautiful laser engraved jewellery, made from natural paua (abalone) shell and sterling silver. They are just perfect for Weddings, birthdays, Valentines day – any special occasion!
We are so excited at getting our hands on some paua directly from New Zealand, where abalone shells are often used in jewellery making, can be cut into small squares for mosaic tiles and as a thin laminate which is laser cut for marquetry crafts, mosaics and fine jewellery pieces. The abolone flesh is used in food, so no parts are wasted.
In its natural state, it comes in a vast mixture of colours (the main colour of the shell is iridescent blue and green, with flecks of purple, pink, yellow), or black with white/yellow. Lamininates are sometimes dyed to give the perfect effect to pieces of jewellery.
We decided to do something different with the paua pieces we got hold of! We had fun in experimenting with engraving on the paua shell and it has turned out beautifully with a silver engraving. and decided to turn them into fine jewellery with sterling silver findings. Our range we are working on can be bought at our shop. We have cuff links, brooches, pendants, and earrings. Contact me if you have a design you want to try out on a piece of paua shell.
