Native American jewelry artist Michael Haskell has designed this traditional bracelet to tell a story of the Lakota way of life.
This unique handmade Native American bracelet is made with a copper center, coated with a Sterling Silver overlay.
Inlaid designs on the face of this jewelry artfully feature Lakota symbols to include the sun, Bear Butte (a South Dakota landmark), a white buffalo, eagle, cloud and rain, medicine wheel, rain cloud and lightning, a thunderbird, a turtle, the morning star, pipes, hills and a crescent moon.
The underside of the bracelet is also inlaid with the four directional colors – black, red, yellow and white, adding additional artful detail.
