Loksi (Turtle) Earrings

$125.00

These beautiful earrings were designed by Chickasaw metalsmith Kristen Dorsey. They feature the Loksi (turtle) shell in beautiful sterling silver.
These light weight and versatile earrings carry great significance. The Loksi (turtle) is a central aspect of the Chickasaw 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 represent the backs of the important turtle and are made using sterling silver with either pearl or amethyst. The earrings hang 1.5" long. This item ships from the US.
  • Sterling silver over bronze
  • 1.5" Long
  • Kristen Dorsey is a Chickasaw metalsmith based out of California. Her work is inspired by the ancient power of traditional Chickasaw symbology and stories.
