Sterling silver studs 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!
Stud length: 13mm
Stone Arrow is based in the beautiful Golden Bay, where all of their pieces are designed and manufactured by Nick himself or his employees in their Takaka workshop. Creating beautiful unique pieces from recycled copper and sterling silver, and upcycled glass from wine and gin bottles - of which they are a world leader in, is their specialty. Stone Arrow runs on the ethos of minimising their footprint on the world and run their business with an environmentally and socially conscious focus. They are a member of the New Zealand Sustainable Business Network and have been a finalist in the national sustainability awards 3 times. Only New Zealand sourced Jade, Paua and Beachstones are used in the designs, giving a very NZ/Pacific flavour - "you can never have too many spirals" is Nick's motto. Nick has recently opened his own South Island based gallery too, where he exhibits his own works along side other artists.
