Wampum Teardrop Earrings


Wampum Teardrop Earrings

These beautiful Wampum Teardrop Earrings feature a sterling silver rope design around the edge. They dangle from Sterling Silver hooks.

Native Americans who lived on the Northeast Coast of North America harvested Quahog clams from the waters of the Atlantic. Quahog shells thrive in the waters from Cape Cod south to New York, with a great abundance of them in Long Island Sound. Native crafters carved the beautiful purple and white shells into pendants and beads.  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, 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!
