2019 End of Summer – We WILL Sell Out!! Happy end Summer to everyone, and a sincere thank you to all my customers for helping EZ-bay go from a “Zero to a Hero” in the Wampum World. I sell both the common white/tan beads and the highly sought after Purple Beads (drilled & tumble washed). The purple beads will be the ones to Sell Out first. I ONLY HAVE 10 STRANDS TO SELL. Thank you again to all who have made return visits and hope you get your fill before the supply runs out. We Are back with THE PURPLE! This wampum is approximately 4mm-8mm with a corresponding proportionate diameter requiring a small diameter needle/string. Please find these 50 bead purple and white strands tumbled and drilled for easy beautiful Jewelry making pieces. They are from a Native American Quahog shell used to make all sorts of high end earnings, bracelets, belts and necklaces. You can give them as completed jewelry pieces or give them as a group. One of the most prized and often used mollusks for wampum beads is the quahog clam (Mercenaria mercenaria). This clam, which lives in the coastal waters of the northeastern United States, has a distinctive shell that yields the purple beads. Most simply, wampum are beads made from various white and purple mollusk shells which were and are still used by various Native nations throughout northeastern North America for ornamental or ceremonial use. Wampum clearly had value though as a trade item between the various Native peoples before European contact. It was later after European settlement of America that wampum began to be used like currency. THE VIBRANT PURPLE & LAVENDER HUES SEEN HERE ARE QUITE RARE!
