When you think of cowrie shells, you don’t often think of a form of currency, but going back hundreds of years ago that’s exactly what it was used for in large parts of Asia, Africa and some places in Europe. These days, it’s no longer used as a form of currency, and we’re more likely to use cowrie shells to decorate our homes, gardens and events and it’s easy to see why.
With their bright designs and distinct patterns, it’s obvious why they were first used as currency, and why they still enjoy popularity as home and event décor. Are you looking for a beautiful addition to your home and event, with a rich history? At Shell Paradise, we stock a wide selection of cowrie shells, clam shells, abalone shells, pecten and scallop shells and shell gifts all available in small packs or wholesale options and all at affordable prices.
