100 pc per bag, approx. These are a recent import from India and are a great substitute for the difficult, if not impossible to get old time dentalium. They are much stronger than the ridged dentalium and tend to run long, most being 1-"to 1-1/2" inches in length or more. Traditional ladies have been using them to make their beautiful dress capes. They work up quickly with stunning results. Dentillium Cape making tip: Sort the shells by length. Start with shorter shells around the neck. Gradually work up in size as you go so the outside rows have the longest shells. If you start with the longest shells at the neck, you will end up wasting a lot of shells. Use a heavy cotton thread for sewing the shells as their sharp edges will cut thinner threads like Nymo or sewing threads. Use a double mercerized crochet thread (it wont shrink) that is fairly thick. This thicker thread will hold up for a long time.
