  • Don’t miss out. If you want unique, good quality souvenirs and accessories made by hand with paua, this is the right place! Far better than any other souvenir shops you can easily find in every touristy spots. More interesting, attractive. I found my birth earring here.
  • Beautiful store with wonderfully friendly ladies who helped me make a necklace by hand for my friend back home! Can’t recommend this place highly enough as a great destination to make a gift to take back home. Five stars for sure.
  • I'm sad I didn't take a picture there but this place is just wonderful for ending a trip! I spent nearly 150 NZD and they gave me a card for collecting points but I gave it to another traveler ;-D One of my best travel memories. And I made a lot of necklaces and bracelets during my busy flights! It was FUN! ✨
  • Wonderful jewelry and wonderful people!
  • This is a really great find. Went in to buy some local beads as souvenir from my trip and walked out with some beautiful locally made jewelry in addition to the beautiful paua shell beads I went in for. The shopkeeper turned out to be one of the artists and could not have been nicer. Was a great change to the same souvenir shops I've seen in 5 cities now.
