Set by Dana Warrington (Menominee/Prairie Band Potawatomi), an award-winning artist based in Cherokee, NC
Porcupine quillwork is an art form completely unique to North America, and Warrington is a master colorist when it comes to dyeing quills.
The wampum was carved from quahog shells (Mercenaria mercenaria), native to the northern Atlantic Ocean. The earrings and necklace are meticulously edged with glass seed beads and backed with hide.
The three-row medallion is 2-7/8-inches in diameter. Its wampum chain is 23 inches long and held by a lobster claw clasp.
Each earring is 1-3/4-inches in diameter and features two concentric rows of quillwork.
The earrings are valued at approximately $200, and the necklace is valued at $500.They are in excellent condition.
