West Papua Ornamental Necklace

White Feathers & Shells



Jewellery in the Pacific Islands has traditionally been worn during tribal festivals and ceremonial events to display wealth, communicate social status, serve as physical and symbolic protection and of course, to ensure the wearer looked their best!

This truly dramatic tribal necklace was handmade in West Papua, using all natural materials – white feathers, medium size cowrie shells and split spiral shells. Secured with natural cotton fibre on a bamboo/wicker frame.

Black metal stand included. Can also be wall mounted.
