This remarkable necklace was handmade by the lovely Ashya Elizabeth of Inner Wolf Jewelry. This is a piece that begs to be seen and have every detail appreciated. Every part of this necklace comes together in a bold but delicate way, and is truly a beautiful representation of the craftsmanship of Ashya and her deeply rooted culture that inspires her work. This silver plated necklace hangs from a 7.5” chain so it will sit higher up on your chest. The full length of the piece is 15.5” long.
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.
Some Inner Wolf Jewelry pieces also come from animals gifted to me by an elder. I have porcupine quills, hair and owl feathers. Some items such as these I incorporate into my jewelry when I feel it’s right. Everything is humanly sourced. No animals are ever not honoured in their gift to me. hiy hiy.
