Natural Wampum Shell Pendant Necklace
This Wampum shell features beautiful deep purple swirls. I collect Wampum shells from the shoreline of coastal towns across New England and turn them into one of a kind art pieces. Each piece is unique, with a natural patterning and coloring made by mother nature. Pieces are very sturdy and smooth to the touch, with edges tumbled soft by the ocean. This is a large pendant measuring 2 inches in length. It has been sealed in a clear coat to bring out the beauty and depth of the colors. The pendant is outfitted with a bail made from purple glass seed beads.
In repurposing these fragments, I am inspired by the Japanese concepts of Wabi-Sabi and Kintsugi, which highlight the beauty and history of objects that are broken or imperfect. Each wampum fragment has spent years tumbling through the ocean to find a new home in a piece of wearable art which highlights the beauty of its brokenness.
Your new pendant will ship on an 18 inch black waxed nylon cord necklace with clasp. All pendants ship beautifully presented in jewelry boxes, making them perfect for gifting as well. Please note that his is a handmade art jewelry piece and is not suited for showering or submerging in water.
