About ten years ago, Phoenix Rogers started toying around with wampum. Made from a quahog shell, wampum boasts a long and rich history for the Wampanoag people, who originated the practice of carving the characteristic white and purple beads. Whether created long ago or in recent days, each piece holds a unique story.
Join Mrs. Rogers and discover how she creates her line of wampum jewelry from shells salty from the surf, to carefully culling the deepest purple, to carving and tumbling. Samples of Mrs. Rogers’ designs will be available to touch and finished pieces will be available for purchase.
