$ 90.00


This mixed media necklace begins with a cowrie shell on a leather assemblage. It also has glass and African brass beads and a tiny cow bell from India. Throughout Africa, and South and North America, the cowrie shells symbolized the power of destiny and prosperity. The East Indian Cowbell is used in India to keep track of their cows.  They are thought to be sacred. Historically, glass beads have been produced as ornaments at least since early Neolithic times
