Green Heart Earrings



This pierced earring set reproduces a glass bead found strung on a brass pin between two bone beads. Found within a 1607-1610 context, archaeologists and curators believe this likely formed part of an earring, which may have been worn by one of the first women to arrive at Jamestown in August of 1609. A match was found in 2009 in the fort’s first well.

Material: Sterling silver, glass
