Story:

The cowrie shell has been used for many years in multiple ways from currency to divination, luck and jewelry.

 

“For me the cowrie is a totem from my childhood. I was always mesmerised by my auntie’s long threads of cowrie jewelry and the vibrant colours decorating her walls. It stirs warm memories of the traditional women in my family and the feeling of belonging to a community connected to both the land and water.”
