Oh the natural colours of the Paua shell are something to be admired..... irridescence of pinks and violets, greens, with oranges flashes... a very interesting material.
This is a strand of Paua of 10 differing shapes and colours. Sized 10-22mm x 24-50mm in width and length and 4-9mm deep.
Use the material as is. Please don't be tempted to nip or cut the Paua shell unless you have a heavy duty respirator mask, as this shell has nasty dust when it is cut.
Use as is and you will have no issues. It truly is a special shell.
Don't be limited by your tess-array....... have fun, play with your tess-array!!
