I start collecting Cowries from been a child. I was very close to my grandmother and she was the first one to recommend cowries to me as a protection shell. Since then I had cowry  made into a ring, bracelets necklaces and even had in my dread locks . I do love cowries as they are beautiful just to look at, feel, or wear as a jewellery, home decoration and more..
