MAORI BRACELET Traditional and Contemporary Designs "WORN BY WARRIORS"
The Paua, the most colorful species of Abalone, is viewed by the Maori as a gift from Tangaroa, the God of the Sea.
These beautiful Paua shell bracelets have a diameter of 70mm. The thick bracelet has a width of 30mm and the thin bracelet has a width of 15mm.
Paua shells "pah-wah" are the most beautiful shells in the world. They are found in the deep waters off of the South Island of New Zealand near the Antarctic. This deep cold water produces a hard shell with a rich deep beautiful color. Colors vary as the shell is viewed at different angles ranging from vibrant blues to greens to purples.
