We have carefully sealed the front and back of the image to ensure that it is water resistant. It will be OK if you get caught in the rain, but please avoid submerging it when swimming or bathing. Each pendant is hand-created at our gallery and so some slight variations in composition and wood tone may occur.
About this design
Inspired by the image titled Cowrie taken by my husband underwater photographer Glen Cowans
The delightful pattern of spots on this "little egg cowrie" is not the shell, for that is pure white, instead it is the surface pattern of the tiny creature that lives within the shell. This is the paper-thin mantle, the portion of its body that actually rises up and covers the outside of the shell and in doing so, both polishes the shell smooth and protects it from scratches. Making these shells true jewels of the Ocean.
