Cowrie Shell Grotie Buckie Drop Earrings
Everyone loves a Grotie Buckie! Delicate but solid Cowrie shell drop earrings
Smart or casual wear. The shell measures 10 mm in length and including bail 15 mm. Perfect gift for bridesmaids or that special person. Cast from a real shell found on a Stronsay beach. Oxidised to enhance the texture.
In Orkney Cowries are called Grotie Buckies and are said to bring luck to the bearer. It’s a great sport trying to spot these tiny shells on the shoreline and sometimes it can get quite competative who can collect the most.
There are two spieces of Cowries found in Orkney. Northern Cowrie, which has no markings and the slightly larger European Cowrie which has 3 spots on their backs.
Comes in a gift box ready to be presented to that special person!
All online orders also come in a paper gift bag with a polishing cloth, jewellery care instructions and a small organza bag of seashells collected from my local beach.
Free UK Delivery is available as an option on all orders but for peace of mind an upgrade to Special Delivery for a fully insured service is recommended.
