Adirondack trail runner necklace. Follow your bliss! There's no better place to follow your bliss than through the high peaks of the adirondacks. A favorite for many hikers and trail runners.
The wampum bead on this necklace is another connection to the adirondack region. Wampum, made from the purple and white shell of the quahaug (quahog) clam, has played a significant role in American Indian culture for thousands of years, traditionally used as adornment, to display rites of passage, and woven into belts to record oral traditions. Since the early history of the American colonies, strings of wampum shell beads have also been used as a medium of exchange and became America’s first currency.
