The shells may be of the striped nerite variety. Here is a link to their entry on wikipedia. The genealogical info is there, too. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theodoxus_transversalis
Those little "snail" shells also appear on Tunisian necklaces. Are they snails or sea-shells? Can anyone identify the species for me and the location of their habitat (i.e. are they North African or something procured by trade?)
very beautiful, I love the small pendants and the little snails between the corals.
I am sure it would look soooo nice on us!! ;)))
I am always in awe of these amazing pieces, glad you like them too ! SX
