Gypsea Wanderer is a totally gorgeous seashell necklace handcrafted in our Byron Bay studio, and inspired by all the ocean dwelling gypsy spirited wanderers who live in our little coastal town...
Each necklace has been individually strung by hand onto sturdy hemp string, and features brass beading with clusters of cowry shells originally from East Timor. Designed with an adjustable brass chain to wear at your desired length, this earthy necklace promises to be a favorite in any collection.
About the Cowrie Shell:
Destined to transfer good luck, fortune and material wealth to those in its possession, the cowry shell is considered a deeply spiritual and highly valued object in African culture. The cowrie carries with it the blessing of Moté, ancient deity and goddess of water, also affectionately referred to as ‘Mother of Water’.
