What is a jacla?

Traditionally, a heishi necklace would have a secondary pendant called a jacla tied on. Originally, the jacla was a pair of heishi earrings that were tied onto the necklace. Later, loops of heishi specific for this purpose were tied onto the lower center of the heishi necklace. A variation of this is a heishi necklace with vertical slab or chunk stones at the center or a layered disc with bead loops hanging from the disc. Read more about jaclas.

 Navajo Pawn Wolf Collection Wolf Pup Collection

This collection consists of a group of very old items that are most likely from the 1920s to the 1950s, due to being able to date a few of the pieces. These are part of the treasure trove gathered by a woman in her beloved travels in the southwest. They were tucked away in her home, only to be recently discovered by her daughter, who sold the collection to help with expenses for her dog and wolf rescue.

We’ve left most of the items AS IS, the condition in which we received them, because the historic condition is so very appealing


WOLF teaches great dignity, courage, powerful Spirit communications, instinct and intelligence. Deep family connection and importance, stealth, wisdom, and extreme endurance. Wolf is a powerful ally on our spiritual journeys.

 


TURQUOISE
is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.

Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.
