Beautiful cowrie shells set in brass and with a hammered effect to represent the ripples of the ocean. According to African legend, if you are attracted to cowrie shells you could be family to an Ocean Spirit. It also represents the Goddess protection which is very powerful and connected with the strength of the ocean. Wearing a cowrie shell will connect the wearer to the ocean and this shell is known to represent wealth, good luck and fertility! The style of these earrings was inspired by Moroccan design from a surf trip I took to Taghazout. The last photo of the earrings shows the smaller pair against the bigger size - this is the listing for the bigger pair. I would not recommend getting brass in the water and over time they may get darker. If this happens you can brighten them up with brasso. Brass is known to be good for people often allergic to jewellery as it doesn’t contain nickel. The jewellery comes in a cotton gift bag and is delivered in plastic free packaging. 5% of profits goes to support marine conservation charities.
