This graceful Necklace displays ivory-colored Ursula Shells and Cowrie Shells, artfully combined. The smaller Ursula Shells are approximately 10mm in diameter, and run in 2 parallel strands through cupped Cowrie Shells, forming a single Necklace strand. The 2nd Necklace strand is constructed in the same fashion. The Ursula Shells have an ivory background decorated in a tan-colored conical pattern of dashes or stripes. Each one is unique. The larger Cowrie Shells are about 8-by-13 in dimension, and are ivory at the bottom with a light gray crown at the top. Each crown is marked with a faint golden circle. The combination of Shells is both fanciful and attractive. At the top of the Necklace the 2 strands of Ursula and Cowrie Shells transition to 2 strands of 7mm Ivory Shell Heishi, streamlining the silhouette. The Necklace is finished with Sterling Silver Rounds and Wrapped Toggle Clasp, and adorned with a Southwest Designs Sterling Charm. The piece weighs 114 grams and is 26 inches long.
