Northern Plain's jewelry is truly an art! A tipi is a conical tent originally made of skins and popularized by the American Indians of the Great Plains. Today, they are usually covered in canvas and lived in by American Indian families attending powwows or encampments, teaching further generations of traditions.
This beautiful sterling silver and jewelers gold pendant is handmade by Lakota artist Mitchell Zephier and inlaid with natural buffalo horn and mother of pearl. Pendant measures 1 3/4" in diameter with a medium size bail ready for your favorite chain or liquid silver necklace.
