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.

Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

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

Comments about CUSTOM TOTEM NECKLACE:

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 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.

                I gave this necklace as a Mother's Day gift. It is a beautiful necklace with special meaning. The only problem is the pendent portion of the necklace twists around and doesn't always lay flat. It is a really unique piece.

                  The necklace is awesome, I just gave it to a co-worker who is leaving. She loved it, and it was really meaningful, personal, and artistic: perfect for her since she too is an artist.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The necklace was hand-made so the delivery of it was a bit slow. I was worried it wouldn't make it on time, but it did. I wish I would've known when it was being shipped though,so I wouldn't have worried if it wasn't going to get here in time for my coworker's last day.
