Inspired by the print 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.
Every earring is hand-created at our gallery and so some slight variations in composition may occur.
Earrings are water resistant but not completely waterproof, we recommend to remove before showing or bathing.
