Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This ring is by far my finest creation ever. I completed this at the end of my one year apprenticeship under a Cherokee tribal chief and his brother on one of the Big 4 reservations just outside Albuquerque. Towards the end of my one year of learning such skills as leather treatment, silver and gold casting, heat treating, etc. I was ready to move on after one final project, which just happened to coincide with the biggest event of the year for Native Americans in New Mexico. This final week of apprenticeship fell during the Powwow of the Four Tribes. During this annual event, almost everyone leaves the reservations to head into the city for all the activities scheduled like dances, the Hot Air Balloon Festival, parades, parties, etc. all week. Additionally, a significant number of native artisans set up booths to sell their jewelry made throughout the year in preparation for this event. My masters and I stayed on the reservation for what they had planned for me. I was lead on what was called a spiritual journey, which served as a right of passage on my apprenticeship. I do not recall much of what occurred during those few days. I did remember fasting the day before and feeling invincible after. The last task was to design and cast a ring for myself to commemorate the completion of my training ending my apprenticeship. The elder told me to let my feelings flow to my tools from deep within me. He told me when I finished it, I was to wear it as often as possible and to never part with it until one day, when I realize that I have mastered everything I was taught, I must part with it. A couple weeks ago I began work on some leather treating and weaving of some new bracelet designs and then one evening it hit me when realized that this was the last skill I had to master from my apprenticeship. I should have the bracelets available here in my studio by mid-February 2010. But the ring is now being offered for sale, as promised to my teacher. There is no other ring like this anywhere.
