This is for ONE large Belt. Glass wampum beads were introduced in the 1800’s as a cheaper source of wampum, so these are a historical substitute to actual shell beads.Please note these beads are again Glass not genuine wampum shell. A Real shell belt in this size would run over $12,000 as the authentic beads are $5 a piece if you can find them for that amount.
. Deer hide leather in between the beads. I don’t cut corners like many other weavers and I finish my ends. Complete with Nickle plated brass beads this weighs over 2lbs
