The LIDDON Family has operated crayfishing and pearl farming businesses at the Abrolhos Islands for 4 generations.
Pearls and Plates is our way to introduce Post Office Island, our home, a coral lagoon surrounded by turquoise water where we grow our pearls .
We love the sea, hosting friends around the table, playing music, experiencing amazing art and beautiful design.
Pearls and Plates has allowed us to meet and collaborate with incredible people, local producers from the Mid West and WA and inspiring international brands.
Behind every little detail you experience today, there is a story, a personal passion, a family to be discovered.
Thank you for being part of our journey!
