Cowrie necklace or keepsake


A cowrie (tiny pink seashell) picked up on one of Iona’s pristine white beaches, captured in a handblown glass globe with a sprinkling of Iona sand. Cowries are notoriously difficult to find, and they are said to bring good fortune and prosperity to the wearer. It is a tradition in our household (sure we are not the only ones) to be the first to find a cowrie shell on any beach.  Each cowrie has been found and collected by ourselves, with great pleasure!

The tiny glass bauble can be supplied with an 18” sterling silver snake chain for wearing as a beautiful necklace; alternatively, it can be suspended on a short ribbon (two alternative ribbons, gold and silver, are supplied), and hung on your Christmas tree. Personally, we would find somewhere to hang it all year round! The fittings are sterling silver, finished with a cultured freshwater pearl and a Swarovski crystal.

Approximate size of glass = 19 x 20 mm.
These beautiful pieces are handmade exclusively for us by our jeweller Laura and will be carefully packed in a padded jewellery box. Please allow 14 days for delivery.

Postage is included in these prices to UK addresses.
