Layered natural and brass cowrie shell necklace.
The cowrie shell is much more than an adornment, it is a beautiful piece of nature that carries an even more beautiful story.
In many cultures, cowrie shells were used as currency. In other countries, cowrie shells were used in medicinal practices.
Moreover, in African cultures, the cowrie shell is regarded as a connection to the ocean/nature, and the deep relationship with one’s community and family.
