Sterling Silver Cowrie Shell Stud Earrings
These gorgeous post earrings, form part of my 'Natur.isle' collection. Each item from this collection has been cast from real seashells we collected here in the Isle of Man, as well as Scotland and the Danish coastline. The shell's have the most incredible texture and are so very beautiful. A little piece of sea life, immortalised in Sterling Silver.
Cowrie Shells have significance in many cultures. In the Isle of Man and other celtic and ancient nations such as Orkney, The Cowrie, or Groatie Buckie shell is seen as a token of good fortune. The Cowrie shell is not a common shell and it is because of this, it is well sought after and treasured when found.
Sure to become a favourite, 'go to' addition to your jewellery collection, or make a treasured gift for someone special.
