Ojibwe is the Comanche form of the word spider thought to weave webs to catch our dreams. The bad dreams would be held and eaten by the asabikeshiinh spirit, while the good dreams would pass through down the feathers.
Inspired by the native American legends, we have created a series of sterling silver grade pendants, which have been forged in the Black Country UK from Eco925 Silver.
This pendant carry's the name puhihwitsikwasʉ after the old Comanche Chief. In english it translates to Iron jacket, as it was believed that he had the power to use his breath to blow bullets out of his path. It is a tradition of rank of the Chief was represented by the size of their feathered headdresses and so by the same token our most decorative pendant in the collection is named after this mighty Chieftain.
This pendant has been designed with a single cabochon cut pieces of natural golden amber at the centre, robustly set in a rub over setting. Followed by three beads of natural amber, which have been drilled to support three feathers, which all move independently. For a little extra detail we even scored the backs of the feathers for a natural appearance.
Fixed to the chain with a thick robust wide tapered silver bail, making it perfect for daily wear. This pendant also comes on an 18 inch snake chain.
