Item details

Cowrie shells cut in half for making jewelry, gluing onto frames and crafts. These are moneta cowrie shells and they are an off white / cream color and vary in size 18mm / 3/4 inch to 5/8 inch long - there is a mix of medium sizes.

These shells are sliced in half, they do not have holes and are good quality shells for jewelry making and crafts.

50 pieces per bag.

Important information:

Cowrie shells come from the ocean and do vary in size, shape and color - nature does not make them all the same.

Cowrie shells are sliced in half by a machine, we cannot add holes or make the slits larger or smaller.

In order to offer the shells at the lowest price possible, we are unable to pick or sort through them for you. If you require all your shells to be the same size, we advise purchasing a kilo bag and sorting through to find the sizes you need.

Shells are pre-washed clean - in 20 + years of using them for jewelry making we have never found any dirty ones or seen batches that were unwashed and unusable.

It is possible that you may come across the odd shell that is off color or misshapen ( we cannot pick every single one out), but to compensate we always add a few extra to orders, so please carefully count the number of shells you received before contacting us.

Cowrie shells vary between batches, but that is just the way nature does it. The shells you receive may not look exactly like the photo, but any variation in size and color will be slight. I have personally found these shells to be the best for hemp jewelry, they are sturdy and have a nice natural look.

We offer shells in 3 sizes - small, medium and large.

All of the beads in our shop are listed as accurately as possible in millimeters but please note all sizes are approximate and may vary slightly. Bone beads are hand carved, seed beads are close out stock and there are many variations in size, color between strands and batches. Please understand we are not responsible to replace or refund unless the item is significantly not as described. (The bead was listed as 16mm but you received 10mm, you ordered red but received green) We do not issue refunds because you found the size was slightly smaller or larger according to your ruler, or doesn't fit the cord you are working with. Customers are responsible to calculate all measurements and choose the right size bead they need.

We aim to accurately represent our products but what you receive may be slightly different from what the photo shows due to shades of color, thickness, length and texture varying between batches during the manufacturing process. Tie knots, variations in color, natural flaws and flyways are characteristic of hemp and are not considered faulty. We are unable to offer a refund or replacement for natural fiber products unless the product is returned to us in the same condition it was received. Items that have been cut, used, unravelled or have torn packaging cannot be accepted for return. Please contact us before purchasing If you are unsure what product is right for your project.

Hemp cord sizes are measured in millimeters. The thinnest hemp cord available is .5mm ( half of a millimetre) and the thickest is 3mm. Thicker hemp (4mm and upwards) is called  rope because it is made up of   multi strands twisted together versus one solid  strand of cord. All measurements  are approximate to give you an idea of thickness but they do vary between products and brands.  The measurements provided are set by industry standards and are meant as a guide only. We do not issue refunds because the cord you received was not the exact  measurement stated according to your ruler.
