These beautiful pieces of 12mm flat tile-shaped gold mother of pearl shell could make a wonderful addition to your bead collection.
Always nice to have some mother of pearl on hand to incorporate into a lovely pair of earrings, a dangle off a bracelet, a necklace, or even as a key ring feature – your choice – test your creativity.
The pearl shell comes from Western Australia’s pristine waters off the northwest tip of Western Australia – and has been handcrafted into unique-shaped tiles.
They are natural ingredients that allow those creative juices to jump into overdrive and temper exciting jewellery-making prospects for beaders of all ages to create on an unparalleled scale.
These tags represent a small part of our extensive range of West Australian shell and bead products.
Our Pearl Shell pendant collection contains several hundred design cut shapes including Dog Tags, Plates, Shell pendants, Name Tags, Axe Heads, Machetes, Love Hearts, Yokes, Drops, Tears, Tiles, Shields, Donuts, Shards, Claws, Shields, and Buttons.
All those shapes have been individually hand-cut - utilising the food from the ocean such as Mother of Pearl Shell, Abalone, Green Abalone, Trochus, Cowrie Shell, Mother of Pearl Shell, MOP, White, Gold, Pink, Brown, Black, Pau Shell, Green, and Pink Lip Mussel Shell.
While the collection weighs approximately 19 grams, the tiles cost $0.40 cents each.
