Dentalia shells were used as a valuable trade item by indigenous people.  Owning dentalia shells were an indication of rank and status and is still highly valued and often incorporated into clothing and jewelry today.  

Each shell on this necklace is approximately 1 1/2" inches to 2" inches in length.  Each shell is attached by a jump ring to the metal rings on the necklace.  

I have incorporated red glass beads into the design of the necklace.  

The necklace chain is a total 19" inches in length with a lobster claw clasp.
