Sequoyah Earrings by Cherokee Copper

Sequoyah Earrings by Cherokee Copper

Regular price $20.00
The Sequoyah Copper Earrings are engraved with the Cherokee Syllabary. 
Sequoyah was the father of Cherokee literacy. Prior to Sequoyah, Cherokee was an oral language. Within a few months of introducing the script the tribe was literate. Books were translated into Cherokee and tribes members were writing and reading.

We engrave a complete sheet of copper, brass or silver with the Cherokee Sylabary, After engraving we had punch the circles which are shaped to give them a convex dome.  Our earrings are approximately 1/2" in diameter. 

We at Cherokee Copper would like to do our part in our Cherokee Community. For every piece of our Cherokee Heritage Collection a portion of the proceeds will go to Cherokee Scholarship Funds to help our youth further their education.
