Wampum Clam Shell Earrings
These Wampum Earrings pay homage to the source of beautiful Wampum Shells. The crafter carved them into mini Clam Shells. The 1/2″ pendants hang from Sterling Silver hooks. Because they are made from natural shell, expect variations in coloring.
Native Americans who live on the Northeast Coast of North America harvest Quahog clams from the waters of the Atlantic. Quahog shells thrive in the waters from Cape Cod south to New York. Native crafters carve the beautiful purple and white shells into pendants and beads. Historically, these Wampum beads functioned as exchange items for the Northeastern Native Americans.
Today, skilled crafters use Quahog Wampum to create pendants, cabuchons and beads for contemporary jewelry. At The Wandering Bull, LLC , we proudly offer a selection of Wampum earrings and pendants. We also provide you with Wampum beads, hairpipe and tubes so you can fashion your own creations!
