En Tribe Neck Cuff in Sterling Silver & Mother of Pearl
Inspired by tribal adornment of bold symbolic chest and neck pieces, two inward facing inlayed shell arrows rest on the collar bones while joined by a solid sterling silver wire that contours around the neck. The native American belief is that having an arrow point to the left wards off evil, and to the right, promotes protection of self.
Variations of shell have been used as adornment for thousands of years – mother of pearl, spiny oyster, abalone, coral, conch and clam were used by ancient Egyptians, Sumerians, and our source of inspiration – Native American Tribes. It’s believed to contain energies from the sea, enhancing clarity and mental processes, providing in periods of decision-making. Our luminescent Mother of Pearl or ‘Nacre’ shell glows vividly, capturing light and colour. Wear and invoke its guidance, heighten your intuition and impress with its radiance.
