A renaissance of beading took place a few centuries after the Vikings when the couturiers of Europe, in the latter part of the 1800s, realized that they could not only draw attention to themselves but also earn a substantial amount of money by embellishing the accessories and gowns of the aristocrats with beads. Elaborate designs, which at times took several months to be created, were stitched on to all sorts of things like ball slippers and dresses.
The worn-out cone shells are Puka shells. These shells comprise mollusks. When these mollusks die, the shell knocks about in the ocean and a hole wears in at the center of these shells. When these cone shells lose their tip and the pointed edge is eroded, Puka shells come into existence. These shells are thereby used to make Puka jewelry. These shells are polished by the ocean. The natural hole is used to strung the shells together. The Hawaiian word for 'hole' is Puka.
This type of jewelry is used as a personal memorial because it features a tiny compartment that has been designed to safely conceal your loved one's cremains to travel with you at all times. This gives you the comfort of knowing that your departed loved one can be with you at all times no matter where you are.
