Birchbark Women's Ring
This brilliant, cool white Relief ring is versatile, and can compliment almost any outfit. It features texturing reminiscent of the papery bark of a white Birch tree. It is available in either sterling silver or white gold. This ring is 4mm in width at the top, cascading to 3.35mm at the base. It is designed, cast and finished by Mohawk Nation artist Yonenyà:kenht Jesse Brant.
The first feature of our 2019 "KARHÁKON: In the Woods" line is the pristine white Birch tree. Watena'kehtá:rons in the Mohawk language, white Birch is a classic silver beauty in the winter landscape of the carolinian woodlands of eastern Canada and the United States. White Birch tree stands can be found grouped at the edge of the woods, brilliant slivers of white against the grey-brown trunks of the winter woods, where the sunlight is at its brightest in the carolinian canopy. Birchbark has traditionally been a women's medicine among the Haudenosaunee; aiding in the contraction of her uterus after giving birth among many other uses when properly prepared by the medicine people.
