Kauai Cowrie Cuff Bracelet
I made this cuff using a Cowrie Shell I found(no live shells taken) on one of the beautiful beaches here on Kauai. I used bead embroidery techniques and gold covered glass seed beads to create a bezel around the shell. I embellished the beading with scalloped edging and faceted Labradorite. The Shell is set onto a handmade 14ga, adjustable, 24kt Gold filled hammered bangle. The back is cobalt blue ultra suede for comfort and style.
