Cowrie shells small size, sliced in half for making jewelry, gluing onto frames and crafts. They are an off white / cream color and vary in size from 10-15mm or 1/2 to 3/4 inch long. This is a small size cowrie shell we also have medium and large sizes available in our bead section.
40 pieces per bag.
Cowrie shells come from the ocean and do vary in size, shape and color – nature does not make them all the same.
Cowrie shells are sliced in half by a machine, we cannot add holes or make the slits larger or smaller – we really can’t!
In order to offer the shells at the lowest price possible, we are unable to pick or sort through them for you they come as a mixture only.
Shells are pre-washed clean – in 20 years of using them for jewelry making we have never found any unclean ones.
