Beautiful necklaces created from high fire clay in which I carved the ancient Taino stone petroglyph for Shaman found on the island of Puerto Rico in the Caribbean.
I handmade these pendants, carved and fired them, glazed and fired them once again in the kiln.
The pendants are strung onto adjustable satin cords and measure approximately 1-3/8" long by 1" wide by 3/16" thick ( 35mm x 25mm x 5mm).
**Only one creation of each exists, what you see in the photos is exactly what you will receive. Colour may vary from PC monitor to smartphone screen.**
The Taínos, whose name literally translates to "good people", were the seafaring people indigenous to the Bahamas, Greater Antilles, and the northern Lesser Antilles. The Taínos were considered one of the Arawak peoples of South America, and their language was a member of the Arawakan family of language in the northern areas of South America. At the time of European contact in the late 15th century, they were the principal inhabitants of most of Cuba, Trinidad, Jamaica, Hispaniola (Haiti and the Dominican Republic), and Puerto Rico. When Christopher Columbus arrived in the New World in 1492, he became one of the first (and only) outsiders to witness the Taíno culture.
