Shell Gorget with BeadsMany styles of round gorgets were made along the southern and eastern coasts of the United States. The tubular beads were cut and drilled from the central column of the left-handed whelk shell with a great expenditure of time and energy.

Our gorgets are made from the same left-handed whelk shell, but our beads are a reproduction made from plastic clay.



Tools From the Earth is also able to create a pierced shell gorget with beads. For pricing, – contact us.
