HEART OF THE SHIELD PENDANT
This elegant pendant was designed by Chickasaw metalsmith Kristen Dorsey and features a labradorite shield set in sterling silver and white diamond accent.
Each gemstone is cut in a small shield shape. The shield symbol, a design theme throughout the Panther Woman collection, symbolizes the strength and courage of our Chickasaw women throughout history. The shield represents how our women are defenders of their families, communities, and culture. Panther Woman, the namesake of the collection, is a historical heroine from Chickasaw oral tradition. 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.
