In Ancient Nigeria, Yemaya was the goddess of the river and ocean among the Yoruba people. When you hold a seashell to your ear and listen to the roaring noises it produces, that is said to be the voice of Yemaya speaking to you. This necklace is designed as a pendant of protection for ocean goers and seafarers. Made from sterling silver and an sustainable, upcycled cowrie shell. Can be worn alone of layered with another necklace as shown in the last photos.
