Product Description

Feather Jewelry

For Native Americans, feathers symbolize much more than just a part of a bird; they stand for trust, honor, strength, and freedom. Many Native American tribes believe that birds have a special connection with heaven, since they fly so close to the sun, and consider it a great gift when they receive feathers. Golden or Bald Eagle feathers are especially revered, as they fly the highest of all other birds.

Sterling silver

Is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver has a minimum fineness of 925.

SILVER, for example 99.9% pure silver, is relatively soft, so silver is usually alloyed with copper to increase its hardness and strength. Sterling silver is prone to tarnishing, and elements other than copper can be used in alloys to reduce tarnishing, as well as casting and fire scale. Such elements include germanium, zinc, silicon and boron.
