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 with a bail to thread over a chain, string or leather you may already have in your possession, or perhaps you may like to add it to another necklacce with other charms. The choice is yours!
Available in sterling silver, brass or gold vermeil.
Please note the cowrie pendant can also be purchased as a necklace with a full chain and toggle clasp - 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.
