Beautiful cowrie shell encased in sterling silver and hung on an 18" sterling silver snake chain. 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! These necklaces look amazing layered with seaglass, amazonite and larimar pendants. Let me know if you want to turn this into a layered necklace and I can help with the chain lengths to get the perfect combo.
