Paua Shell Earrings, Hearts & Crosses
Gorgeous paua shell heart and cross earrings handmade by me, Kati, here in New Zealand. The beautiful rainbow of blue, green and purple colors seen in paua shell is only found in this type of abalone from our small country where the very cold waters of our Southern Island make the shells with these fantastic layered colors.
This elegant pair of earrings features heart-shaped paua beads, double-sided so they look good when they turn and dangle. I've wire-wrapped the beads with a little greenstone bead on top and a wee stainless steel cross underneath. The hooks are minimalist stainless steel leverback ear wires that close behind the ear - very safe.
Lovely natural shell earrings for casual or dress-up wear, which come attractively packaged to treat you - or so they are ready for gifting.
