Custom One Eye Wampum Turtle Totem Silver Ring

193.00

MADE TO ORDER.


Turtles have been major influences in mythology and origin stories for hundreds of years. They are one of the oldest symbols to represent the Earth. One of my favourite origin stories comes from the Seneca Haudenosaunee (Iroquois). When Mother Sky fell, the great Turtle rose from the waters to break her fall.

This Turtle Totem ring features a genuine carved wampum shell. This wampum is set in a pure silver scalloped bezel. The turtle is all hand sawed, stamped, and polished smooth. His eyes are made of molten silver, for a unique one eyed look. The silver has been patina darkened and sanded in places for maximum contrast. The back of the turtle is covered in arrow stamps and the inside of the ring reads, "ATSENHAIENTON", which translates roughly to “the fire still burns” in Mohawk Iroquois (i.e. Kanien’gehaga). Perfect for a totem or talisman piece, and all turtle lovers. This design is Navajo inspired.

MADE TO ORDER in your selected size with your choice of wampum. Please allow 1-2 weeks for production before shipping. Finished turtle is shown as an example of what yours will look like.

This will come in a sweet little muslin bag, as it's too large for my jewelry boxes.


*this wampum is from the quahog clam shell. Whelk shell is often considered wampum when used in larger ceremonial pieces, like wampum belts.
