This arm band was designed by Chickasaw artist Kristen Dorsey.
The armband is an element of traditional southeastern regalia, which is still worn today by modern Chickasaw people. According to traditional stories, the spider brought fire to humanity but as a consequence, it forever carries a burnt mark on its back.
This armband is one-of-a-kind and features a hand-carved and lost wax cast spider cast in sterling silver set with a red sapphire to symbolize fire. It is surrounded by a motif taken from ancient shell carvings symbolizing feathers. It measures 6.7" long, and 1.25" wide. Price of US shipping and handling included.
