Cape Clasp

Quahog Shell Silver Necklace


Quahogs are hard-shell clams that are commonly used for clam chowder, a staple on Cape Cod. Although quahogs are edible, they serve many other purposes and have a deep & rich history.

Hard clams, or quahogs, are of great ecological importance and can be biological indicators of environmental changes. Due to hard clams being sedentary, any movements can be significant.

Cape Clasp are not the first to use the quahog as inspiration for jewellery. The Eastern Woodlands tribes of the Native Americas made white and purple beads, called 'wampum', out of quahog shells.
