I hold a deep respect for indigenous wisdom and what it has to offer the world today.
This necklace honours the seven teachings of the Anishinaabe people. Each feather on the pendant represents one of the seven teachings - Love, Humility, Honesty, Courage, Wisdom, Truth and Respect.
The necklace is made with quality sterling silver. The pendant is roughly 2.5 inches tall by 2.25 inches wide. It also features a 6mm round citrine cabochon stone in a bezel setting.
I drew the seven feathers myself, each one unique and one of a kind. I then cut them out of sterling silver. Each feather is soldered to another piece of 1mm thick sterling silver sheet. All seven are then soldered onto another layer of sterling. Three layers deep - adding depth and quality to this creation.
The necklace is 19 inches long and closes with a handmade hook clasp. Attached to the back of the chain is a tag with my initials.
