A Best Seller

For the woman whose style is as rich in meaning as it is in appearance, our Black Lip Shell Earrings are more than an accessory, they are a connection to Cherokee traditions. 

These earrings are always a best seller when we bring them to events like Cherokee Holiday. In fact all of our shell work sells out in person.  You definitely want to grab these while they are in stock. 

In every aspect, from design to material, these earrings are a testament to Cherokee artisanship.

They are a conversation starter. They tell a story of resilience, beauty, and cultural pride. As you wear them, you carry the legacy of the Cherokee.

Material : Black Lip Shell, Surgical Stainless Steel Wires

Size:   2" 

We do our best to match the shell  for color, but because this is a naturally made item no two shells are exactly the same. 

All of our jewelry is handmade in our studio in Oklahoma. 

Please allow 5-7days before we ship.

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.
