I've had these paua shell coins for a while but I hadn't decided what to do with them. I'd played with a few ideas, but I finally decided to go with something simple and let the natural beauty of the shells be the focus--and really, they're quite beautiful. They have a gorgeous iridescent shimmer the camera just doesn't pick up. This would be great for a bellydance costume.
