SIGNIFICANCE
 

  This cuff is in honor of turtles as representatives of this earth we call Turtle Island, and that comes with that significant act of generosity and kindness. This carries also the meaningful energy that comes with Wampum shells. When used in my jewelry, it represents the strength, commitment, and gratitude of the wearer.

WHAT GOES INTO IT
 

  Made of solid Sterling Silver, with a Wampum inlay. This piece typically takes me 4 hours to make by hand. The completed piece gets inlaid (up to 48 hours), then ground and polished (30-45 minutes) before it's cleaned and packed for shipping (another 30 minutes). As with all of my work, it gets several smudges for the intended wearer of the piece and is included in several Thanks Giving Addresses.

CARE & MAINTENANCE
 

  This piece can be polished with a soft toothbrush and a non-grit toothpaste or dish soap. As with all sterling silver jewelry, normal care should be taken not to drop or damage the piece. These are strong pieces with the highest quality inlay possible, but sterling silver is still a soft metal and deforms/scratches fairly easily. If your ring has a cabochon that falls out and the stone setting is not damaged, you can use superglue to re-attach it or take it to any jeweler for just a few dollars because this is a common repair.

 * To reduce tarnishing and damage I recommend keeping this piece in the closeable plastic bag provided when not being worn. DO NOT wear this piece during dangerous or laborious work, such as construction!
