Marshanda Feather + Shell Necklace
Why we love it
The Balinese name for brave girl is Marshanda, which is exactly what INA + ILIA’s feather and shell necklace evokes. Equally beautiful worn around the neck or displayed on a wall, this showstopper Marshanda Feather + Shell Necklace is hand beaded and woven of rattan, organic cotton, white feathers and cowry shells in the sacred city of Ubud, Bali. Known as the Philosopher’s shell, the small, smooth white cowry shell represents increased fertility, energy and injects new vitality to the wearer’s life. The white feathers symbolize peace, protection and divine help. An emblem of beauty and perfection, this weighty shell necklace is sure to brighten up anyone’s soul. Looking for the perfect gift for your fierce female friend who needs an injection of protection and increased health? Look no further.
