Inukshuk Pendant
Inukshuk Pendant in Sterling Silver, Copper, and Abalone Perl ($65)
The Inukshuk, usually consisting of stacked stones, is thought to have been used as a marker by the Native People in the arctic regions. These symbols are found extensively in western Canada, particularly in British Columbia. During a recent trip to Vancouver, BC, my wife was captivated by a pendant depicting an Inukshuk, but felt that it was too large for her tastes. So upon returning from our trip, I designed and fabricated this one for her. The body's head, legs and midsection are sterling silver, the hip pedestal is copper, and the shoulder section is abalone pearl, enclosed by a silver bezel. The pendant itself, not including the top ring, is just three-quarters of an inch tall.
