about this shell...
The humble little black Pipipi Shell, commonly found in tide pools and clinging to most all rocky areas in the Hawaiian Islands, makes for a dramatic backdrop for this trio of deeply colored pink & orange Sunrise Shells. A unique bracelet with three almost identical top shells, 1 inch each in size, and with very beautiful coloring, has an authentic flavor of Island Aloha and cultural tradition. The Pipipi marine snail was a common food source in the days of old Hawaii, and its shell was frequently used for ornament.
A matching set of Sunrise Shell and Pipipi Shells earrings complete the set. Both bracelet and earrings include all sterling silver findings, with a decorative tribal style toggle clasp closure on the bracelet.
Original, hand crafted, one of a kind MonicaByTheShore Sunrise Shell jewelry, made with Aloha on Oahu's beautiful North Shore, Haleiwa, Hawaii.
