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.
