Medicine Wheel Amulet for Personal Power Pewter Pendant with Cord Necklace
This is a pewter pendant from our Amulets Series. The pendant is made from lead free pewter and made in the USA. A Medicine Wheel is also referred to as a "Sacred Hoop" and is constructed, mainly by laying rocks in a circle pattern, with spokes to the center. Amulets and Talisman were originally worn to identify which tribe or people one belonged to. Over time these items were formed to indicate traits such as strength, power, wisdom, hunter and so on. Not only was a pendant worn to show these traits were possessed, but also that the wearer would gain those characteristics.

Native American Bracelet
Native American Bracelet
I have always been interested in anything Native American. I love the colors of their jewelry. I decided to make one of my own. I created my bracelet with a turquoise background with black symbols for rain and the hummingbird. In the middle of the bracelet is the medicine wheel with a center green dot. In the pattern, it explains the meaning behind the whole bracelet. This is an original bead pattern design created in peyote stitch by me. This pattern is available at the Bead Patterns Boutique.
