The Santa Cruz Islands are in the southern most group of the Solomon Islands. Important men wore these white clam shell discs known as 'tema' for ceremonies and as a form of battle dress when fighting.
Archaeological excavations on the Santa Cruz Islands have revealed large tridacna shell discs demonstrating that they have been made there for almost 3000 years.
