Dentalium shells cast in Bronze and paired with either a 14k Yellow gold fill chain or an oxidized sterling silver chain. Dentalium shells were used by the Inuits and Native Americans as a trade item and found in traditional jewelry.
A ribbed texture brings the curved form alive, resembling mini tusks. We cast these in Bronze and paired them with either an 18″ or 26″ chain.
The 18″ has a lobster clasp and is tied at the back with blue Lapis Lazuli rondelles and a Lapis drop.
The 26″ has a floating Herkimer Diamond and does not have a clasp, it is an over-the-head.
Made by hand in Colorado.
