Tiger Cowrie Shell Necklace Golden Tigers Eye Copper Handmade Jewelry

Item Description


What a fabulous one of a kind necklace for the woman who loves earthy-looking, beach jewelry!  The unique TIGER, TIGER handmade necklace features an eye-catching tiger cowrie shell pendant, golden tigers eye gemstones in two sizes and shapes and copper.  The high gloss shell came from a tiger cowrie, a large sea snail found on reefs in the Indo-Pacific area from the eastern coast of Africa all the way to the Hawaiian Islands.  For thousands of years, tiger cowrie was used as money, jewelry and religious accessories in many cultures.  The very shiny pendant has a background of pale tan with the tell-tale darker spotting of tiger cowries shells. To add more natural beauty, a rusty-reddish line runs from side to side at an angle.  Wider at the bottom than at the top, the pendant is rounded, the snow white back concave.  A heavy duty copper jump ring connects the tiger cowrie shell pendant to the main body of the necklace.  Please note:  due to the high gloss of the shell, it was difficult to take super clear photos of the pendant.  The dots and other markings are much clearer in real life.
To perfectly complement the tiger cowrie shell pendant, golden tiger’s eye gemstones were used.  Golden tigers eye is a gemstone with a silky luster and filled with chatoyancy or a cat’s eye effect, a shifting band of brighter reflected light. The larger golden tigers eye gemstones have a breathtaking star cut, large facets that show off the qualities of the gemstone and add a wonderful sparkle.  Nine star cut tigers eye stones are found on both sides of the necklace separated by smaller tigers eye rounds and copper beads.  The smaller tigers eye stones finish the back of the necklace, each grouping separated by small copper beads.  A patterned, solid copper s-clasp set securely finishes the necklace.  Carefully designed and handmade by Catherine of Shadow Dog Designs, the stunning TIGER, TIGER necklace was created for the woman who loves to wear one of a kind artisan jewelry with an earthy, beachy vibe!

Tiger cowrie shells are used to repel negative energy and keep away the evil eye.  Golden tigers eye is said to be a stone of protection and is believed to bring good luck to the wearer.  Copper allows the wearer to recognize barriers in the path of personal development.
