GUARDIAN STATEMENT RING IN STERLING SILVER
This elegant ring was designed by Chickasaw metalsmith Kristen Dorsey and features a hatchet and shield design in sterling silver.
The shield-like contours of this ring are designed for optimal comfort and elegance as you blaze those trails every day. The powerful shapes are actually four hand carved hatchets symbolizing the weapon of choice for Chickasaw women of the 1730s who effectively defended their families and homes from European invaders. The shield shape of the ring brings confidence while reminding you to meet every challenge fearlessly and boldly. Today we wield knowledge instead of hatchets, however, we are no less fierce than our grandmothers, and will pass on this gift of strength to our granddaughters.This item ships from the US.
Kristen Dorsey is a Chickasaw metalsmith based out of California. Her work is inspired by the ancient power of traditional Chickasaw symbology and stories.
