The Sirena necklace is made with a cowrie shells I upcycled from second hand belts - this way the shells are not taken from their natural habitat. The pendant is encased with sterling silver and has a beautiful smooth feel to it. Designed to be a classic heirloom piece which can be worn with a bikini and bare feet or dressed up. The hoop is designed so that no additional findings need to be added and therefore it’s very secure on the necklace. The necklace is an 18” sterling silver snake chain. If you want a slightly longer or shorter necklace please contact me for options. These are all natural shells so are all slightly different in size and colour, please contact me if you want exact dimensions or to choose your pendant. This necklace looks amazing layered with an ocean coloured gemstone pendant such as Larimar, Amazonites or Turquoise. Please contact me if you wish to see what combinations are possible. 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!
