Cowrie | Fine Silver Clay Shell Pendant
Cowrie shells have always been highly valued by many African cultures, and have had multiple uses throughout history. They are made into jewelry and hair ornaments, sewn onto prestigious garments, used in religious rituals and as protective amulets, and up until the late 19th century they were even used as money.
They have been well known to symbolise womanhood, fertility, birth and wealth.
