Cowrie Shell Necklace


Cowrie shells are iconic tribal shell necklaces. The necklaces were traditionally used as a a form of shell currency by the Tolai people of Papua New Guinea. The currency would be used from watering for everyday goods, to bridal dowries, purchasing land during initiation or mourning ceremonies. 

Each necklace has been handmade in Indonesia, due to this natural process no two pieces will be identical and the shells may have natural variations in colour. All necklaces come with a stand and work perfectly as a decorative piece for any space. The stands are removable should you wish to style in any other way.
