Cowrie Shell Bracelet
Single Cowrie Shell Bracelet with Slide Knot Adjuster and Silver Plated Beads
These beautiful shells are worn by many today as a fashion statement, but there is a lot more to them than you may know.
The Cowrie Shell has been worshiped and held in the highest esteem for centuries and was actually, (according to many historians), the first form of currency.
Cowrie Shells are believed to be a gift from the Ocean Goddess ‘Mami Wata’, a gift as a tool to help increase fertility. They are today worn to bring the owner wealth, luck and protection.
There are also many symbolic reasons for the use throughout history of Cowrie Shells which is definitely worth looking up to realise just how important the Shells have been and still are throughout the world.
Cowrie Shell is hand threaded and knotted onto a strong cord which is adjustable.
The bracelets are made to approximately 18cm closed.
