Spondylus shells and beads.
Complete spondylus shells.

My son is getting in touch with his ancentral (Chamorro) roots. Here, he is wearing a Sinahi necklace beaded with spondylus shell. He was walking on the ground where our ancestors once walked upon.

The above art work was carved from the giant clam shell. The center pendant is a slingstone; everything else that follows are sharktooth.
