Brass Cowrie Earrings


Engraved Cowrie Shell Earrings by JAM + RICO

Cowrie Shells circulated as a medium of exchange in Asia, Africa, Oceania and North America. The cowrie shell, in particular, was the form of currency in West Africa during the transatlantic slave trade.  These earrings are perfect for everyday wear and can layer easily with hoops. A small reminder of the islands.
