New Guinean jewlery had many functions, primarily to display wealth, prestige, status in society or ritual use. These items are created from Naasa shell, Kina shell and even boar tusks or teeth. They are skilfully woven together with natural fibre. These pieces would make rare and exotic additions to your collection.
