"The sky broke like an egg into full sunset and the water caught fire." Pamela Hansford Johnson
The many different Northern Athapascan peoples have lived in the forests within the drainage areas of the Yukon and Mackenzie Rivers for many centuries. The snowfalls are heavier, the winters longer and the summers shorter than along the Arctic coast. In these cold, coniferous regions the sun sets quickly once it touches the horizon, sending light, bright colors upwards toward the heavens.
Our Athapascan Sunset Talisman, with its rayed ivory, bright blue/green opal representing the setting sun, four sterling silver beads and two square Blue Fossil Walrus Ivory square beads representing the small amount of blue sky left while the sun sets, is the perfect Talisman you'll love wearing for all informal occasions.
Enhanced by a strip of leather as a neckpiece, this Talisman is 1 3/4 inch high, 1 1/2 inch wide.
Wearing this one-of-a-kind Talisman will remind you to search the heavens for the colors of the setting sun each evening!
