Raterennotha' Turquoise and Deer Hide Statement Necklace

318.00

Raterennotha' Necklace ™

This necklace is a song of the steady stream, the bubbling brook- of the river.

Raterennotha' is "sing" or "chanter" in Kanien'kehaka Haudenosaunee (Mohawk Iroquois).
The natural ribbon cut white buffalo stone with black chert host rock matrix echoes a stone found by the water. The 5 natural deeply saturated blue turquoise stones from the Kingman mine in Arizona stand for water. All of the stones are set in pure silver bezels and rest on a hand sawed sterling backing. All of the silver has been stamped, filed, patina darkened, and sanded for detail and contrast. Small dark silver spirals detail the duo deer hide necklace. It is topped with a dark silver "s-hook" clasp. A statement necklace for lovers of the Eastern Woodlands and song of the river, this piece is hefty and everlasting with the proper care.

Measurements:
The necklace is 21". The larger ribbon cut white buffalo stone is roughly 1 3/8" for stone size reference. Necklace length cannot be adjusted.

*The deer hide I use I cut from full hides acquired from my local annual powwow where every part of the beautiful creature is used and not hunt for sport/trophy. The leather is high quality and doesn't flake like many commercial leathers - however please take care when wearing this as with all leather jewelry. Do not wear in the shower, pool, or during any other kind of wet activities.

As always comes sweetly packaged in a jewelry box ready for gifting.
