New Zealand Abalone (Pāua) Beads




Like a small nugget of gold, Luméa shell beads are handcrafted by skilled artisans. The edges are smooth, and can be shaped to your requirements with a small hole for threading means this product is ready for use. A unique natural product with vibrant blue, green and pink hues.


Shell beads have no chemical coating, they are polished using an acidic wash. Suitable for use in jewellery or textiles. The colour may fade if left outdoors, in direct sunlight.


Please enquire for our range of different shapes and sizes


Shell is a natural product with a variety of factors that affect appearance. Your screen settings also affect the experience of the colours and appearance. Therefore, there is no guarantee it will be possible to achieve the exact appearance as what you see on this website. Certain characteristics of our products may be altered depending on storage conditions or their use in combination with other ingredients. This is beyond our control and we strongly recommend contacting us directly with specific enquiries and testing prior to use.
