These beautiful bracelets feature hand-inlaid abalone shell beads, also known as pāua shell, and grounding rosewood or whitewood beads.  All of the pāua shell beads are hand-crafted by talented artisans on the island of Cebu in the Philippines.

      PĀUA, also known as Abalone shell, is a natural shell known to instill peacefulness, like the sea it comes from. Abalone is also known as "the shell of calm" which can increase the flow of energy, help release fear, protect the aura, and aid in communication. 

      The beautiful iridescent colors of blue, green, and purple almost resemble the ebb and flow of waves, symbolizing transition in Maori culture. Abalone can be a talisman to protect you and guide you in your life journey.
