Cornish Cowrie Shell Hoops 9ct Gold

Cornish Cowrie shell hoops, available on a choice of two hoop styles and sizes.

The Creole hinged sleeper hoops are very lightweight, they are made from a hollow formed sheet metal they are tricky to do up but there is a knack and once in they are quite secure, the stud hoops are made from solid 1mm diameter wire with a stud and butterfly fastening these are a little heavier to wear but much easier to take in and out.

The original shell was found on Trefusis beach in Flushing near Falmouth, a mould has been made of this shell is then cast in solid 9ct Gold.
