She's At The Top Of Your Totem Pole

Encourage friends or family members to embark on a new adventure, face doubts, or stand up to challenges with this beautiful piece that says it all with stones. Along a sterling silver spine, artist Ana Sheldon stacks five beads from your choice of twenty-one different stones. Each alternating round, cylindrical or rectangular stone possesses its own special meaning. One or two wooden beads are artistically placed within your beaded totem. Select your own unique combination of polished pieces--like rutilated quartz for luck, garnet for devotion, onyx for strength, apatite for acceptance, and malachine for balance--to bestow personal meaning to this emblematic tower of unique talismans.

Each customized pendant comes with a card detailing the meaning behind each stone. To see the meanings behind each stone click here.

The adjustable, 17" sterling silver chain has extra eye closures for adjustable lengths (up to 18"). An additional stone is suspended from the end of the closure to finish the piece and add intrigue to the back of the necklace. Handmade in Illinois.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

As a child, Ana Sheldon was already using beads to create simple jewelry, and she never lost her love of the medium as she grew older. She studied metalsmithing and jewelry design at Illinois State University, and now she uses those advanced skills to combine metal and beads in new and distinctive ways. Drawing inspiration from the organic shapes of natural stones, she seeks to create sculptural jewelry that brings beauty to everyday wear.

Was Disappointed

By 

from United States

Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Totem Necklace:

I was disappointed when I saw this necklace in person because it was fun picking out the stones and I thought it would turn out really nice, but when I saw it the stones didn't really look they had in the pictures. They were different shapes and one was a different color. I know that certain types of stones look different depending on the cut, but I would expect that they would look fairly similar to the images online. I felt like I didn't get the quality I paid for.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Totem Necklace:

    I liked that I could customize this necklace by the meanings of the stones. It was a gift for a friend and she kept commenting on the one I bought for myself back in February. Great conversation piece...I bought another one for my niece who chose the stones on her own. I never take it off (well, except for the MRI but that's another story).

    My sister LOVED this necklace that her two nephews created for her. We had fun picking out the gems that we felt would fit her personality and be inspiring. She loves the necklace and thought the personalization was a very special gift.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Custom Totem Necklace:

    It's a very unique necklace and good for a special gift since you can customize it to reflect a persons individual qualities. The chain could be longer and sturdier. I Thought the price was a little high, but when its custom made, you should expect to pay a little more.

      Service and delivery comments:

      My only problem was i ordered the product 3 weeks in advance and was hoping to receive it before our anniversary, unfortunately when i placed the order it told me about 3 weeks lead time i asked for expedited delivery which was not available for this product. Even having this order for 3 weeks it was not put on a truck until the last second.

      You guys need a feature that will give us some information on the shipping of the product before i click purchase.

            Love the piece itself but the chain was all tangled when it arrived. I was glad I shipped it to myself first. Still working on the chain and might have to buy a new one as my friends birthday is approaching fast. The box it came in does not look like a $100 necklace is inside.
