Pendant - Wind-Maker (Sterling Silver with Carnelian)
Artist: Noel Brown
This sterling silver Wind Maker pendant is hand carved by Northwest Coast First Nation artist Noel Brown. The eyes of Wind Maker are accented beautifully with Carnelian.
Once, there was a very strong wind blowing. Raven and the other people were getting tired of this strong wind, as they were unable to travel. They decided to hold a meeting, so Raven invited Heron, Seagull, Crow and Grebe. They wanted to know which way the wind was coming from. Thinking it was from the north, they headed off on that course.
Carnelian restores vitality and motivation, and stimulates creativity. It gives courage, promotes positive life choices, dispels apathy and motivates for success.
Measurements: 1 3/4"
