Dentalium Necklace

Join Us for an Unforgettable Experience!

Immerse yourself in the cultural richness of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe at our exclusive event. Learn the art of crafting the Dentalium Necklace, witness the storytelling behind each shell, and take home a piece of tradition that transcends time.

Embrace Tradition: Adorn Yourself in Prestige! Traditionally associated with wealth, dentalium shells adorned women’s capes, dresses, hair ornaments, and earrings. Now, you can make and wear this symbol of prestige. Suitable for ages 15 and up.

Crafted with passion, each necklace features 70 white dentalium shells, sinew, antique beads, and bells. Explore the history of these shells, once used as currency from the Pacific Northwest to the Dakotas.

Be part of a celebration weaving together history, craftsmanship, and the timeless beauty of the Dentalium Necklace.
