Paua Jewellery Care
Paua shell is high quality nacre, the same material as pearls. DO NOT use chemical cleaning dips, as these can eat into the natural shell. Gentel polishing with silver polish or a silver polishing cloth will restore the lustre and shine. Rei Jewellery Ltd.

The Designer Ray Fransham
This piece, like all our jewellery, is a design of my creation - Ray Fransham
The unfurling fern frond is at the core of the design, with its ideas of growth and new beginnings. Wrapped in a circle that references the sea and the way it encircles our islands.
But the design should be about what you see in it, and the emotions you find in it. Passing this on to ..... will give the piece true meaning.
Koru (Spiral) New Zealand Paua Shell Pendant
A design inspired by traditional symbols of growth and life. The unfurling frond itself is symbolic of new beginnings, growth and harmony.
