Many of the Pacific Islanders still decorate themselves with sea-shells, especially in Papua New Guinea. Some of the sea-shells are absolutely magnificent.B J Hunnicut aka Colin
I bought home some seashells from the west coast of Australia, was going to make jewelry but never got around to it.
Bet it didn't cost as much back then either haha
it is really beautiful ,i think old jewelry is more attractive then modern one,
Yup, we gotta have our bling. I didn't realize sea shells was one of the first types of jewelry but it makes sense.
Wow 100,000 years we love fashion isn't it. Sea shells seems very nice might make a comeback very soon.
Nice fact. These earrings are beautiful :)
It certainly goes way back.
Just because you're primitive doesn't been you don't want to look nice.
We still make jewelry with seashells. :-)
what beautiful they are Adam!! I love earrings is almost the only thing I use , just beautiful!!
Wow, for so long? That's impressive!
those from the photo are lovely
I didn't realize it was that long...
We humans do love to adorn ourselves, don't we?
