The 4 Directions Spiral is a design that has been found on artifacts in the Mounds Builder Settlements of the South Eastern United States.
With this symbol, the focus is on:
- customary stages of life (childhood, adolescence, adulthood, elder)
- cardinal direction (North, South, East, West)
- seasons of the year (spring, summer, autumn, winter)
- fluidity expressed through the flowing lines which mimic water, a very important part of all Southeast Indigenous communities
- an emphasis on the recurring number four
In keeping with this tradition, our Directions Collection expands this shape to also include a total of seven lines. The numbers four and seven are central to Cherokee life. For example, we look to the Seven Generations that came before us to ensure the success of the Seven Generations to come. We also have seven clans

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.
