The OCEANIA amulet is made with an Abalone shell, purple Cowrie shells and large African recycled glass beads. Bone and fish spine beads compliment this absolutely stunning statement necklace. Also included in the design are light teal African recycled glass beads, brass spacers and coconut shell beads. This amulet is substantial and the weight of it feels awesome and the Abalone shell gives one a sense of protection. OCEANIA is a gorgeous talisman that sparkles with a rustic, tribal sophistication. It would make a stunning addition to ritual or ceremonial wear.
Necklace measures 22.5 inches.
ABALONE SHELL may make you feel: love, beauty, gentleness, caring, comfort, peacefulness, delight, solace, sand, water. Abalone Shell has the colors of the ocean in it, blues, greens, purples and yellows. It is soft to the touch from repeated tumbles in the sand and water. It has slight ripples on it like the patterns left in the sand as the waves lapse over it. It is comforting to hold it and rub the softness like you would a worry stone. People are instantly taken with its beautiful colors. For those of you who have never been to the ocean, buy a piece of it, and bring a little piece of the ocean to you. Energies of Abalone are protection and emotional balance. Usually found off the coasts of S. America, Japan, and China. Nicknamed the sea ears, the Abalone’s flattened, oval shape with iridescent interior was used by the Native Northwest American Indians as a natural vessel for cleansing, offerings and prayers.
