Navajo crafted suede medicine wheel pendant
This medicine wheel necklace is hand made by Navajo craftsman.The medicine wheel is an all encompassing system of life common to most Native American traditions. It has four directions: the East, South, West and the North. Whole books have been written about the medicine wheel and what each direction represents and the exact colours and positions of the various elements can vary between tribes and teachers but this does not matter too much (as long as you stick with the system you become familiar with) as the basic message is that to live to your highest potential and happiness you must put all four aspects into balance. This is a system (like the Kaballah is a system) that can be studied and applied to daily living. The medicine wheel as a symbol is a symbol of balance and reconciliation with yourself. To wear or have around you this symbol states your intention to live in balance and manifest the joy and peace this balance will bring. The medicine wheel is a symbol of world peace as well as inner peace.
Diameter of ring is about 4cm (1.5 inches). Total length of leather thong about 16 inches. Can be adjusted.
