Shell Jewelry

Bracelet Fragment

In comparing the shell artifacts found at Creswell Pueblo and AZ J: 14: 36, we have found that more olivella beads are present at Creswell, while glycymeris bracelet fragments are more numerous at AZ J: 14: 36.  These two types of shell are the types that are most widely found at many sites in the Southwest.    The differences in proportion from these two sites, however, may due to the fact that only a small sample size is available for analysis from AZ J: 14: 36.
