The cowrie shell is, by far, the most popular shell in Senegal. The shells can be seen in women's hair, in anklets and jewelry and in decorations. In some parts of the world, the shells have been used as currency and symbolize everything from fertility to wealth, protection and strength of the ocean. This gorgeous piece is accented with glass beads to give it the perfect “pop” for any ensemble.
*Each piece is handmade so there might be slight variations in size and color.
The Bantu Necklace
Women across Africa, from Senegal to South Africa, use traditional weaving techniques to create beaded necklaces. Artisans use hundreds of tiny glass beads for each cluster in the bold and colorful statement pieces. And just like its namesake, our Bantunecklace is full of heritage, full of culture, and full of color.
*May have slight variation in color and design as this is a handmade one of a kind product.
