Pawa fully inlayed surface
Pawa shells are esteemed both as seafood and as a valued resource for contemporary and traditional art. Like other molluscs, its shell is a bi-product of the seafood industry. Instead of discarding them, we encourage their collection and cleaning for inlay. The shells are inlaid and left unsealed so that their natural pearlescence is unspoiled. We enhance the beauty of the shells by various methods; selecting for colour, cutting in different shapes, cracking and cutting.
