One of a Kind

Reimagined Components: North Carolina found Wampum shell with blue-green howlite stone crown bead strung on 24" tan leather cord. 

1888's Take: "When I travelled the country with my friend Tristan I collected these chunks of wampum to make jewelry from the North Carolina coast. I am so grateful for the gifts that the earth and sea allowed me to use for our jewelry. It fills my heart to overflowing with its generous kindness." - Nathan

 

~Wampum~

Wampum is a traditional shell bead of the Eastern Woodlands tribes of American Indians. It includes the white shell beads fashioned from the North Atlantic channeled whelk shell and the white and purple beads made from the quahog or Western North Atlantic hard-shelled clam.

~Howlite~

It is a super-calming stone and many people use it to relieve stress of all kinds. It makes an excellent antidote to insomnia due to an overactive mind.

  

After each artifact or specimen has been discovered it is sent through a careful restoration process before being used in a design. If a particularly unique patina is found to add design value to an artifact, it's preserved & sealed to ensure its longevity & protection.
