Two crossed hatchets symbolize the weapon of choice for Chickasaw women of the 1730s who effectively defended their families and homes from European invaders. The earrings were created using the ancient chasing and repoussé technique in order to celebrate the strength and intelligence of our Chickasaw ancestors.

Details

These earrings are cast in sterling silver and adorned with a moss aquamarine fringe. The meticulous bead work creates an ombré effect while the sculptural metal work is highlighted with an antique finish. Lever back earring findings lock securely onto the ear.

Collection

The Hatchet Women ~ Indigenous Resistance since 1736

During the French Indian Wars of the 1730s, villages in our southeastern homelands were under attack by French Soldiers looking to take our resources and harm our people. However, they were stopped by Chickasaw women. Armed with hatchets and skilled in combat, these unconquerable women forced the French to retreat.
