Pipi shell charm in silver

Pipi Shell Charm

Our cute handmade little sterling silver "Pipi" charm is a common edible shellfish found at low tide just below the surface of a sandy beach and a delight to eat both raw and cooked. The Pipi is the shellfish most associated with summer holidays. It's great fun digging at low tide with your hands just below the sandy surface or use your feet to find this yummy treat.

The Pipi has been an important part of the Māori diet since the first peoples arrived in New Zealand. Many tribes would travel around their area in a seasonal rotation harvesting the various sources of shellfish.
