Native Americans on Cape Cod transformed the Quahog Shell to make beads for their own form of currency and jewelry making. Our Quahog Shell is a replica of an actual shell that has been cast in high grade lead free pewter replicating the exact shape and detail of the quahog shell. We have combined this beautiful and lustrous shell with pewter plated beads with a barnacle inspired pattern on the surface and faux pearls attached to the Ring Mesh Necklace. The glimmering ring mesh provides a gentle interpretation of the sand flats of Cape Cod Bay where the quahogs are abundant. This necklace is a must for the special occasion as you remember your Cape Cod memories.
