Also known as 'mother of pearl' or 'abelone', and probably many other names, this beautiful shell is my inspiration for my latest aceo, 'Paua shell cross aceo'. Paua shells come in various sizes and have a lovely shimmering appearance. This little one in the photo is from my local beach and is the smallest intact shell I have found. Compare it to the size of my aceo beside it. (the size of an aceo is 2.5" x.3.5").
Follow the link to my Etsy shop for more of my aceo's. Hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoy creating them!
