The story of two wolves - is the basis of our most popular cuff design. We are excited to offer it in a slimmer version. Our Riley Cuff is a perfect size for a man or woman to wear.
Our copper cuffs are untreated and will take on a beautiful patina with age. The best way to care for it is to wear it.
The story of the Grandfather and his grandson goes like this.
"Once upon a time, there was a Cherokee grandfather, who told his grandson, “Grandson, there are two wolves inside of me. One wolf is white, good and altruistic, generous and kind, and the other wolf is black, mean and greedy, violent and angry. The two wolves are in a constant fight within me.” The grandson, with wide eyes, says, “But which one will win, grandpa?” And the grandfather says “The wolf you feed.”
Wear this 5/8” cuff daily to remind you to feed the right wolf. Remember it is not just enough to starve the bad wolf you must feed the good wolf daily with good thoughts, and deeds.
Each cuff comes packaged in a beautiful box with a muslin bag and and a story card.
How Do I Care For My Copper Jewelry?
The Best way to care for your Copper is to wear it often The natural oils from your skin will keep the copper, and pearls nice and shiny. Copper will acquire a beautiful patina over time. We feel that the patina is part of the natural beauty of the metal.
As much as possible do not wear your jewelry when working out or doing any heavy physical activity that will cause excessive sweating.
Clean your copper jewelry with a soft cloth if dirty you can use some liquid dish soap.
If you prefer, you can coat the metal with clear fingernail polis to maintain the shine.
Why Does Copper Sometimes Turn My Skin Green?
Have you ever noticed a green tint on your skin after wearing copper jewelry? That is a chemical reaction between the copper, oxygenand the sweat on your skin. The process is called oxidization and is your body's way of absorbing the copper. Copper is an essential element and your body needs it. If you skin is turning green it is your body's way of telling you that something is missing.
Where Can I Find Cherokee Copper In Person?
We are frequently asked if we have a store location. The answer is someday. But for now you can find us in cultural gift shops, museums and art galleries from Cape Code to Tahlequah. You can find our most up to date list of locations here.
sent to a couple in Rome and they LOVE the cuffs… the wolf and four directions. they do not have a Native American culture in Italy, and they appreciated the Cherokee story so this was a good gift.

Tracing my mother's family heritage from the Dawson Rolls, prior to the Trail of Tears from Tennessee. And other family documents, I humbly realize my ancestors would never have been able to wear this jewelry without some form of harassment. The Wolf You Feed cuff bracelet is Awesome❣️ Thank You very much to you and the staff you have chosen and the research you have done. What an amazing man Sequoia must have been. Sincerely Diane Wagner
