Dentalium Shell Earrings


Dentalium Shells were harvested by the Nations along the west coast of North America.  However Dentalium Shells have been found by Anthropologists all across the continent because of their use as currency throughout traditional trade routes that connected all Nations across Turtle Island.  

A very traditional craft.  

Today Dentalium Shells are used as adornment most commonly in Regalia.

2 Styles:  Fancy $45, Regular $25

Made by Mary Beth Beading. Hand made in Canada
