Only The Highest Quality Work...
We specialize in only the highest quality work from the very best of artists.
True Treasure Of The Deep...
Pacific Pearl shell is a true treasure of the deep and is absolutely stunning when polished and carved into a personalized pendant around your loved ones neck.
It has layers of gold or black through the silver/white peal which seem to shift and swirl around as the carvings are turned.
Pacific Pearl comes in gold lipped or black lipped varieties which often reach 10 inches or more in diameter and close to an inch thick.
Pearl Is Almost As Hard As Jade...
Pearl is almost as hard as jade so is a wonderful long lasting material to do intricate carvings in.
A bone, jade or pearl carving is a very special piece of personal artwork to wear yourself or give to someone you really care about.
Each piece is crafted by hand so even if following the same design, no two pieces will ever be exactly the same. Unique pieces can also be designed especially for you, telling your story through traditional styling.

Woven Flax Presentation Bag...
Every carving comes with a traditional style cord, a woven flax presentation bag and a description of the meaning or story behind the design.
The average dimensions are 2 inches long x 1 1/4 inches wide (50mm x 30mm)
They really do represent superb artworks in miniature.

"Thanks, the pendant arrived safe and secure and after wearing it for the 7 required days to give the pendant good luck,
it now hangs proudly around my kiwi boyfriends neck.
PS. I am also wearing the pacific pearl koru, instead of a engagement ring, bought for me by my boyfriend in December. The proposal was in Amsterdam on Skinny bridge. It means a lot when you read the meaning of the koru.
Much more appropriate than a bit of gold and diamond :-)"
