The original design of this pendant was created using the ancient technique of Chasing and repoussé. Chasing and repoussé was a process used by Chickasaw ancestors to create hand sculpted designs out of hammered flat metal. Tiny possum grapes accent a central pyramid-cut banded blue lace agate. The art-deco inspired framing around the possum grapes is embellished with fiery pink sapphires set in solid sterling silver. A Dramatic tassel of hand strung garnets adorns the bottom of the earrings.

Significance

Possum grapes are a favorite fruit of both past and present Chickasaw people. These tiny wild grapes can be found throughout the southeast as well as in Oklahoma. A popular recipe still made today is possum grape dumplings.

Details
