SIGNIFICANCE
 

  This cuff represents the first 5 Nations (& all 6 Nations since 1722) of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. It represents peace and strength through unity, but also carries the strong energy that comes with Wampum shells.

WHAT GOES INTO IT
  Made of solid Sterling Silver, with a Wampum inlay. This piece typically takes me 5-7 days to make by hand. The completed piece then gets 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!
