Significance The panther hunts it's prey while bathed in moonlight. Panthers are an important clan animal in Chickasaw culture, and are also associated with the waters of the Chickasaw homelands in the southeast. A pre-release of the new Oklhili' Hashi' collection, these studs feature hand carved panthers crouching over luminous rainbow moonstones surrounded by southeastern design work that represents rays of light. The panthers symbolizing the strength one gains through adversity, and the moonstone illuminates it's path. May you feel courageous and powerful while wearing these.
These studs are cast in sterling silver with an antique finish. With available plating options in Rose Gold and Black Ruthenium. They are set with rainbow moonstone.
Earrings: Approximately 1" long and 1/2" wide at the top of stud
Oklhili' Hashi' translates to "night sun" in the Chickasaw language. It is our phrase for moon. This collection honors those moments of life changing transformation, when challenging times might break you down, yet you emerge a stronger, more radiant version of yourself. I began this collection shortly after the birth of my daughter, who is my Oklhili' Hashi'. This experience of giving and nurturing new life has been one of the most challenging, yet one of the most transformative times of my life. Each piece of this collection celebrates the the power of change and transformation, and symbolizes new strength that emerges to shine light in the darkness.
