Forged from 100% reclaimed metals, Yanapuma is so excited to share the brilliant and current creations of husband-and-wife design team Ashley & Dara of Alkemie Jewelry. Their unique jewelry is equal parts art and accessory.
These hoops have a great feather detail coming down the front of them to make them unique and beautiful.
Native American feathers are an important symbol of the Indian way of life.
It is used to represent freedom, power, wisdom, honor, trust, strength, and much more. Feathers were seen in wardrobes, headpieces, adorning their homes, and tattooed on their bodies.
A Native American who had a personal accomplishment or achieved something great for the tribe was often given feathers by chiefs or elders as a symbol of strength. Being given a feather of any kind was considered a gift.
This piece is handmade in Los Angeles.
These earrings are approximately 2 inches in height.
Available in Gold Patina with with the posts in 100% reclaimed sterling silver.
By creating new designs from existing materials in abundance, the mission is to translate something that would otherwise be landfill-bound into wearable art. These pieces are pioneers with hopes to change the jewelry industry with its social and environmentally responsible practices. Yanapuma loves working with this team as they too promote local living wages and eco-sustainable business practices.
