New Zealand Maori (New Zealand’s indigenous inhabitants) call the ocean Moana and in particular the ocean which surrounds our island nation Te moana-nui-a-kiwa.
This breathtakingly striking pendant symbolises this mighty ocean – the swirls of the Paua Shell Cabochon mimic those of the deep ocean from which it was harvested.
The oval shape itself stands as a sign of uniqueness and a zest for life, celebrating the creative mind and a kindred spirit in the risk-takers who dive deep under the water to retrieve our precious Paua Shell.
We are then able to use this unique shell to create the beautiful handcrafted jewellery pieces you see here on our website.
