Remember long summer days every day wearing this gorgeous dragonfly silver pendant set with paua shell
This highly polished New Zealand Paua (Abalone) Shell silver pendant is a great place to start putting some fabulous colour in your life. The shell has beuatiful colours with greens, blues and purples being most common - the colours and designs that show in the shell make each piece quite indivuidual - the miracle of Mother Nature.
As a child I loved to see sit and watch dragonflys skimming across a pond or creek, the sun caught their wings and they shimmered and shone in the sun - they filled me with wonder - they wings hardly seemed to move and yet they moved with amazing speed and accuracy. As an adult I find myself still enchanted with them - they symbolise change and a bringing of maturity and serenity - with grace and elegance.
Paua is from the group of Abolones that are found only in NZ. The shellfish has been used as a food source for centuries and is still a highly prized delicacy - a visit to NZ would not be complete without tasting a delicious paua fritter - commonly found at one of our many weekend markets.
It is the interior of the shell that has the stunning blue and green colours - in olden times the local Maori used the polished shells as adornment for their carved figures. The polished shell is still commonly used for adornment and jewellery.
Jewellery that is created from Paua Shell is considered organic jewellery as it originates from something that was once alive - using it to create this stunning dragonly pendant seems very fitting!
This outstanding paua shell dragonfly pendant would be a welcomed gift, or a special treat for yourself.
