sold outenquire here
Rina Ward is a jeweller who uses nature and found treasures as inspiration and materials. Handpicked and handmade in the Bay of Islands, each piece carries a little piece of foraged flora or fauna. A pair of real delicate small paua shells set on drop earring wires. Shell have been hand gilded with 24k gold leaf and hardened with clear resin. Paua (also known as abalone) are considered taonga (treasure) to Maori and the rest of New Zealanders. Unlike other Paua shell jewellery, we intentionally chose sun-bleached shells with subtle lustre. Sustainably and ethically harvested from a Northland Paua Farm.
