Central to Chickasaw culture, four loksi (turtle) shells are arranged in the four directions. These statement making earrings represent the backs of the important turtle.
Loksi 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 cast in bronze and plated in rose gold.
The earrings hang 2.5" from the ear.
