'Paua Idol' in sterling silver.
In October '05 we went to Rarotonga in the Cook Islands,
where we saw one of the heats to 'Raro Idol'.
I decided to resurrect my pauashell sunglasses
first using Rarotongan pearlshell,
then a New Zealand pauashell version.
Paua sunnies were my very first eyewear frame I made, in 1981.
