At Wildabout Wampum, our selection of pendants is as extensive as the stock of raw shells we have on hand at our workshop.
As with all of our jewelry, each pendant is different from the next. Once you have selected the style you want, we can send you a photo of any of that style we have in stock for you to choose from. Or, if you'd prefer, we can custom make your piece for you. First, we will discuss with you how large or small you want your piece to be (we usually refer to a coin size to determine pendant sizes).
We will also want to know what variation of color you desire. While Quahog shells are always a variation of purple and white, the selection of hues from dark to light is as variable as grains of sand on a beach - or perhaps as variable as the shells in a clam bed.
You have to decide whether you want darker shades, lighter shades, perhaps a blend of bold purple and white stripes . . .
Once we have a good feel for what you are looking for in your pendant, we will select the shell which provides the aspects you desire and sculpt the piece to meet your preferences. That's the beauty of our one-of-a-kind Wampum jewelry! They are as unique as each of us is.
