Miigis Bracelet (Various)

$35.00 Sold Out

These bracelets were made by Beyond Buckskin owner Jessica R. Metcalfe and feature miigis (cowrie shells). The bracelets are adjustable with an enclosed rubber stopper to fit most wrists.

The shells were used in Medicine society rituals (prior to European contact, demonstrating that we had vast trade networks prior) but they were also used for trade and adornment. You'll love wearing this lil bit of history - modernized! The Miigis shell appeared to our ancestors, bringing them light during a dark period of sickness, and the powerful Miigis guided them to new areas, moving west, to help ensure that they could continue living their ways, because, this particular prophecy told of a new sea of people that would come to the area, threatening our ancestors' existence. Let this little shell bracelet also guide you.

These are gently dipped in 24kt gold, silver, or rose gold for a modern and secular twist on the sacred item. Wear it everyday - it will be your favorite! This item ships from the US.
