In Greek mythology, not only was Amphitrite the goddess and queen of the sea, she was the sea personified itself in female form. The cowrie shell is also a powerful symbol in many cultures and is often linked to destiny and prosperity.
I have long been attracted to fossicking for shells and other treasures uncovered by the tides. I have a vast collection and each one holds a sentiment of time or place, a reminder of peaceful times spent in paradise that can be carried and worn each day. This cowrie has been cast as an exact replica of one of the many I have collected – one that's from a special time and place in my life.
The charm measures approximately 2.7cm in length and hangs from a toggle style clasp on a rectangular link chain. The chain measures approximately 21inches long, perfect for layering.
Available in sterling silver, mixed metals. (Brass shell on sterling chain) or 22ct gold vermeil (please select your preferred option at checkout).
Please note the cowrie pendant can also be purchased as is with no chain - sold separately online.
Limited stock available. Please note made to order items may take 3-4 weeks to be hand crafted as each item is handmade by myself. *I currently have one necklace ready made in gold vermeil ready to ship*
