Shells are everywhere, from headwear to anklets, these beach treasures will bring a hint of nature to your look. 

The cowry shell is a must-have item in your collection of accessories. 

Cowry shells are naturally cream-coloured porcelain looking shells that come in various shapes.

Predominantly used in its natural colour, it’s become very popular for them to be gold-plated.

The combination of cream and gold can give a beachy laid back look a more sophisticated feel. 

Don’t hesitate to wear it as part of an evening look – bracelets made of a string of shells are great for stacking.

You can’t go wrong with drop earrings in clusters, or a necklace. Choker or long, with or without a pendant, try layering necklaces with different texture and size chains.
