Seashells – the outer skeletons of marine mollusks – have fascinated humans since ancient times. Ancient societies used them as tools, currency, ornaments and spiritual objects. Shells were often made into jewelry and were known to eliminate negative energy.
Seashells connect us to the ocean, and to water energy. Water is the element that represents our emotions. By being in contact with seashells, we open and activate our intuition and sensitivity. This allows us to be able express our imagination, and our creativity. When we are able to express and share our emotions and ideas, we begin to heal ourselves and have a greater impact on others and the healing of the planetary family. Every species of sea creature has its own message for us that offers guidance for our lives.
Shells are gentle healers and messengers, and very powerful tools of transformation. Each seashell was created as its home by an individual animal who had their own package of DNA and their own consciousness. Each shell, therefore, has its own bundle of information to share with us. That information is waiting to be accessed whenever we hold a particular shell, or even just look at one in a photograph.
This bracelet has been handmade with gathered seashells from the Ionian Sea. They have been hand-stitched amongst a background of black beads, creating a tribal effect. When one chooses this piece, it is as if they are choosing two bracelets, for it can be worn two ways – shell side up, or fabric side up. Under the seashells and beads colourful printed cotton fabric has been sewed together to create a lovely bohemian fabric bracelet. The piece adjusts to your size as you pull the cotton thread open or closed. The measurements are:
17cm circumference (minimum size)
29cm circumference (maximum size)
3cm thick (band thickness)
