Product Description

Wampum shells have a story. The story of balance and duality. The Iroquoian- and Algonquian-speaking peoples used wampum for decoration, adornment, story-telling and communications. It was used to make woven belts, with the two colors acting as mnemomic devices commemorating agreements and events important in politics, history and religion.For the Algonquians, white beads represented purity, light and brightness, and would be used as gifts to mark events that invoked those characteristics, such as the birth of a child. Purple beads represented solemn things like war, grieving and death. The combination of white and purple represented the duality of the world; light and dark, sun and moon, women and man, life and death. Reference- Wanderingbull.com. 

This shell represents something beautiful and in part for the connections of shell with water and its life giving properties.

I learned a bit while in the process and may this cuff keep you in balance.
