New Zealand Paua shell
is one of the most
brilliant and colourful
shells in the world,
there is a strict quota system
that is enforced for the gathering of paua by both commercial and individual
fishermen. Due to this fact and popularity of
this shell, it has became more expensive over the years and the price
continues to climb.
The shell is brought over to Bali from New Zealand, worked,
shaped, polish and made into jewelry at our work shop.
