Availability: Out of stock
Artist: Shannon Gillis - 3 Affiliated Tribes - Ft. Berthold

This necklace has been hand-made with dentalium shells and beads with a dragonfly as the pendant.

Dentalium shells are small tubular mollusks that look like little elephant tusks. There are over 300 species of dentalium, but the species most used by American Indians were Dentalium (Antalis) Pretiosum which are found along the northwest coast of North America. They have been used ornamentally as beads, money and symbols of wealth for thousands of years and many varieties can be found around the world

The meaning of the dragonfly symbol was to signify happiness, speed, and purity. The dragonfly also represents transformation and life's ever constant process of change.
