These earrings represent the backs of the important turtle and are made using black ruthenium over sterling silver with either labradorite, rainbow moonstone, apatite, pearl, pink pearl, black pearl or amethyst.
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.
The earrings are cast in sterling silver and plated in black ruthenium. They are set with your stone choice.
