    Elizabeth James-Perry Hand Sculpted Elongated Oval Wampum Necklace

    Elizabeth James-Perry Hand Sculpted Elongated Oval Wampum Necklace The centerpiece of this necklace is a hand sculpted elongated oval medallion of wampum, created by Wampanoag artist Elizabeth James-Perry, with a cord of hand braided linen. The artist selects her shells carefully and cuts and finishes them all in the traditional way, by hand, to preserve their attractive contours and colors. The contours are difficult to display in two-dimensional photographs, but they add a lot to the visual aesthetic when seen in person. Wampum has been used by coastal tribes for thousands of years. Items made from quahog shells, commonly called wampum, are culturally significant to New England tribes and are held in great esteem within families and within tribes. Perry hand selects each quahog shell for color and other qualities. She continues this traditional work form as a way of honoring her connection to her ancestors, their history, their way of life, and the ocean that sustains them. Pendant is 2 5/8 inches high x 3/4 inch wide x 1/4 inch thick. Hand braided linen cord is 39 inches long, so it can be tied at any desired length. Materials: quahog shells, hand braided linen

    Hand forged copper gorget

    Jonathan Perry's people are the Wampanoag of Martha's Vineyard. Perry methods are very traditional: rather than buying sheets of copper, he creates his jewelry from chunks of raw copper, cold hammering them into thin sheets. He adorns them with line images made with the edge of a rock. The images represent the stars that witness the earth and all of creation. The cord is drawn through two copper plates and black and white glass beads. 4" diameter. The braided cord, made from smoked deerskin, is knotted, so it can be adjusted to the desired length.
