http://collections.aucklandmuseum.com/ontology/core/researcherComments CKH session 20180707 - 25131 – ornament called Te bure (the large shell on this ornament) it is attached with string (te kora) as an ornament at the waist or on the arms as dance ornament . 25129 – Te bure – this is a special type of shell – Luiosa says that she carries one around with her. When strung as a series on the waistband of a dancer, that dancer is most likely to be a married woman, older than young girls. The young girls have a similar waistband but this is of shells of a different name called [te tumara] The te bure shell itself has special properties for protection, and can be strung on the roof of the maneaba for purposes like this. Young girls don’t have te bure, only married, or mature women have this. P.164 G.Koch. The material culture of Kiribati, 1986, "An important arm ornament worn by men and women for the ruoia dances are the bure n aonibai, rare large shells (Amphiperas ovum). Men or women use terebra shells to bore two holes near the edge, in order to string them on coconut fibre cord and bind them individually around the upper arm, or they bore just a single hole near the edge of these bure and bind them together in pairs with a cord (e.g. one made from female hair and strips of pandanus leaves) and fasten them like that around the upper arm. If a person owns several such ornaments, he or she may also tie them around the lower arm.

http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/description Te Bure. Dance ornament of egg cowrie shells. This is a dance ornament worn upon the neck or arms. They are considered rare and of value. They would be worn for the ruoia dance. The bure are bulbous in form, off-white in colour and smooth in surface texture. Some transparent pale brown marks dapple the surface. Both of their ends feature short spires. Opposite, the other ends present an interior canal. The aperture of the bure are narrow. Their interiors are light orange in tone with a surface layer of dried white residue. The inner lip curves inwards with a softly serrated surface. Circular perforations have been drilled into the mid section of the inner lip. This could have been made from the use of a terebra shell or te uubai (pump drill). A two ply cordage called Te nimwaerere is made of dark brown human hair and benu (coconut husk fibre). It has been threaded through the circular perforations and knotted to hold both bure together. The ends have been left untied. Te bure are usually kept in the possession of mature and/or married women.
