Loksi Talowa Haksibish Taka'li
These one-of-a-kind earrings are titled Loksi Talowa Haksibish Taka'li. They were made by Chickasaw metalsmith artist Kristen Dorsey.
Loksi (turtle) is a central aspect of the Stomp Dance. Shells are filled with pebbles and bound together on leather. Women then wear them on their legs as they dance, creating the rhythm of the music.
These earrings are composed of individual repoussé and chased turtle shells crafted from Copper, Fine Silver, and Fine Silver with 24K Kumbo fused to the surface. They hang from Mexican Fire Opals, representing the sacred fire, which is central to the Stomp Dance ground.
These earrings are fabricated out of 14k yellow gold, 24k gold kumboo, fine silver, copper, and AAA grade Mexican fire opal. The earrings measure 2.5"x 1.5."
