    This pair of Paua Shell and silver earring was a thrift store find in the 99 cent basket, not a bad deal at all, I must say.

      I’ve seen many references to Paua shell jewelry and only 1-2 for Paula shell jewelry....are these names of the same abalone shell creations or is Paula Shell a jewelry designer?

      Your earrings are lovely and finding them as you did must have been exciting! Nice find!

      Watchsearcher - thank you so much, typo error on the name, it makes a world of difference.

      RichmondLori, No worries....others have made the same typo! :-)
      If those were mine, I would be wearing them all the time....I love rummaging thru those baskets.
      My best find there was a sapphire tennis bracelet that I actually got for 50 cents because it was half-price day.
      I had it checked out at a local jewelry store. Found out the sapphires were genuine but stones that I hoped were little diamonds were actually cz and metal was sterling silver with a gold overlay....still, it looks expensive - certainly more than the 50 cent price. :^D

      Watchsearcher, you bet, I try to find clothes to match now instead of matching the accessories to the clothes, thanks for you comment.

      Newfld, thank you for looking and for your comment.

      and thanks to


      for the loves
