Paua Shell U - Drop Earrings (Fossil Shell)

| /

Real mini farmed paua shells set in modern U-drop earring wires. The outer shells have been coated with a semi-translucent hardener that resembles a natural fossilised shell. Shell is infused with speckles of Bay of Islands beach sand.

– Paua shells symbolise the expression of the well-known quote “it is not what is outside, but what is inside that counts.” Rough on the outside and lustrous on the inside. A reminder to shine your light from the inside out.
– Whether it’s something you treasure yourself or a gift for someone, paua shells are also a symbol of home as they were once the dwelling place for marine creatures. Wear this jewellery to keep your thoughts at ease and remind yourself that you will always have a safe haven wherever life may take you.

Paua shells have been sourced from a sustainable and ethical local paua farm. These shells have not reached full maturity so have been sustainably repurposed for jewellery.
