This beautiful pair of earrings were crafted by Ashya Elizabeth of Inner Wolf Jewelry contain ethically sourced Mink vertebrae. The Mink teaches you to pay attention to timing and your intuition; honing your senses and increase your awareness. The Mink vertebrae are looped through the brass hoops with a lever back closure and are 3" in total length. To prolong the life of your jewelry and keep the colour and shine, avoid direct contact with perfume, water, and lotions. Keep your jewelry in a dry environment whenever possible, for example in a jewelry box or a dry storage area. Pick up a polishing cloth and use as directed if you want to keep your items super shiny!Here's a little bit about the maker of this beautiful piece:Inner Wolf Jewelry is me: Ashya Elizabeth, from First Nations Cree from Treaty 6 territory. I am also mixed with Turkish. I hand-make each piece sold in the Inner Wolf Jewelry shop using quality materials that I trust, love and find impactful. My heritage is a major influence in my life, and I find the art of jewelry is an amazing conduit for my knowledge.
I’ve always had a deep connection with crystals and minerals and animals and love their positive energy. They have become the center of many of my designs, from bracelets to dreamcatchers. I use some geo-plated crystals - mostly amethyst and mixed mineral quartz, but I try to stick to the raw natural stones as much as possible.
My values guide my business practice; honesty, authenticity, and affordability. The mix of materials I use are influenced by my culture and heritage, and carefully selected and curated. I source most of my materials from the earth, including crystals and naturally shed antlers. Feathers used in my pieces are sourced from my elders. Each piece is designed with a feeling or thought in mind.
