Native American Indian Brown Pine Nut & Dentalium Necklace

This necklace is made with pine nuts, dentalia shells, cedar berries, and black beads.  The natural materials were used traditionally by the Yurok people.  Dentalia shells were used as a form of money.

Native American Indians utilized the environment to meet all of their needs.  The natural resources surrounding them provided food, medicine, clothing, shelter, and adornment. This necklace is a contemporary version of that worn traditionally by Native American Indians of northern California.  Although we live in a modern word, it is important to remember where we came from, important to continue the customs and traditons of our ancestors.  

This traditional style necklace is appropriate for both casual and professional occassions.
