Primitive Elegance jewelry features a ceramic pendant created by hand from clay, combined with gemstones, bone, glass or wood beads to complete this modern tribal jewelry. The ceramic pendant is hand cut, fired, glazed, fired again. Finally the bird decal is applied & the piece is fired a third time to 1700 degrees so that the bird melts into the ivory glaze to become permanent.
Beliefs vary by tribe or culture, but the bird totem generally represents higher knowledge, strength, and patience. I love to use gemstones for their beauty, luxurious feel, and healing properties. Pairing them with traditional Native American hairpipe sets the piece apart from other jewelry. Hairpipe (tubular beads tapered at both ends) were originally made from conch shells and were highly valued. Today, genuine hairpipe is made from bone or horn and is used by Native Americans to create chokers, necklaces & striking breastplates.

The lava used here is known for its strength and the ivory color hairpipe is made from buffalo bone.
