I am enrolled in a wonderful e-course called SouLodge (click on the link to your right to see more about it). This month, we are working with Buffalo. I purchased a wonderful Buffalo fetish earlier this year, not knowing She would be one of our guides. I felt called to make this necklace for myself in Her honor.
In addition to this wonderful central piece carved by Albuquerque artisan Anthony Turpen, I have included a polished stone from the Pacific Ocean, a small turquoise teardrop, and a replica of a Chinese coin. I made the copper coils from wire to separate the pieces. Everything is then hung from a leather cord, which is adjustable.
All of the components were purchased here in Santa Fe from a wonderful store run by Sudasi J. Clement and Ruthie Parrott, called Beadweaver. If you're in Santa Fe, be sure to visit. And please tell them Kat sent you ;-P.
