Dentalium and Abalone Choker Necklace, by Leah Mata
Dentalium and Crystal Beads Necklace
Leah’s education, B.A. in Anthropology and a Masters in Cultural Sustainability, has afforded her access to collections and archives to further understand the traditional expertise of the Chumash people, and these necklaces are a brilliant example of her research and respect for traditional adornment in our contemporary world.
- about 20 inches in length, adjustable to about 25 inches; this necklace will go over your head if you prefer a longer length rather than choker style.
Leah Mata, Northern Chumash
