Kwalia Necklace


We had the amazing fortune to have one of our necklaces featured in the Oscar-nominated Best Picture, The Descendants!

The necklace is worn by actress Shailene Woodley throughout the movie. We worked with the amazing Wendy Chuck, the costume designer for The Descendants, to design this piece specifically for the film.

The necklace is an exact replica of the piece designed for the movie. Its components are oxidized sterling silver, and an antique shell (approx. 50-100 years old) from New Guinea. 

The oxidized sterling silver chain is 16" long with a 1.5" extender.

Each piece is lovingly handmade in our Portland studio. A slight natural variation in the size, shape, and color of the shells may occur.
