Maria ~ open cross necklace and earrings
Primitive Elegance tribal jewelry features a ceramic pendant created by hand from clay, combined with gemstones, bone, glass or wood beads to complete this elegant look. The ceramic pendant is hand cut, fired, glazed, then fired again.
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 Hairpipe (tubular beads tapered at both ends) were originally made from conch shells and were highly valued.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.
Jasper is used here for its grounding qualities and beautiful turquoise color. Antiqued hairpipe is made from buffalo horn. Wood beads are lightweight and beautiful, but they are also grounding as an earth element.
