*Wampum is made from one of the hardest and most beautiful shells in the world: the Northern Quahog, a clam found along the New England coast. The white and purple layers of the shell create the most entrancing patterns. Every single piece shows a unique and natural beauty. The Wampum name originates from the Algonquin word wampi meaning "white." Only a small percentage of shells have deep enough veins of purple and are thick enough to make beads and stone for jewelry.
