The Sequoyah Copper Round Earrings celebrate Sequoyah's gift to the Cherokee, a written language. These 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.

Our earrings are approximately 3/4" in diameter.  We ony use surgical stainless steel wires in all of our earrings. 

All of our jewelry and gifts are handmade in our studio in Oklahoma. Please allow 7-10 before we ship. Need something faster, choose Front Of The Line Shipping at Checkout. This option allows you to skip to the front of the production line. Standard shipping times apply once shipped 

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.

The earrings are absolutely beautiful. I love that they are made of copper. They were a little smaller than they appeared on the website. I purchased a pair for my sister and myself. We will enjoy wearing them with Cherokee pride!!!❤️

Sequoyah Legacy Copper Syllabary Earrings

I had wanted the whole Sequoyah Legacy Copper Collection, but the earrings were dangles (which I don't wear). I contacted Cherokee Copper and asked if they could do posts instead. They happily accommodated me and I got the earrings completing the collection. I have loved having and wearing them!


I bought a pair for myself and a pair for a friend. We both love them! Great craftsmanship, great history, great earrings! Thank you :-). I'm waiting for someone to ask me about the symbols because I LOVE knowing this history!
