Handmade pendant created from a Shiva shell set into sterling silver, approximately 10mm x 8mm diameter, and suspended on a slim sterling silver chain with bolt ring clasp.
Shiva Shell, also known as Pacific Cat’s Eye, is a stunning natural shell. Discovered on the seabed in the shallow tropical waters of Thailand and Indonesia, it is actually the protective door at the opening of the Turban Snail’s shell, which towards the end of the snail’s natural life, detaches and sinks to the seabed. Although the body colour is always off-white, the beautiful swirl can vary in colour, depending on the snail’s diet. Named after the Hindu God, Shiva, the shell represents the Third Eye found in many depictions of the God. Folklore suggests Shiva Eye Shells are “Mermaids’ Money” and good luck to travellers and fishermen.
Chain length: 18 inches (46cm).
Packaged in a grey box with Porth Jewellery logo.
Each pendant is handmade by Laura using unique pieces of shell, therefore may vary slightly to the picture.
