243 - Cherokee Rose Cuff Links (0294)

SKU: 0294 $15.00
I designed these pieces myself. When the Trail of Tears started in 1838, the mothers of the Cherokee were grieving and crying so much, they were unable to help their children survive the journey. The elders prayed for a sign that would lift the mothers' spirits -- to give them strength. The next day a beautiful rose began to grow where each of the mother's tears fell. The rose is white for their tears; a gold center represents the gold taken from Cherokee lands. The wild Cherokee Rose grows along the route of the Trail of Tears into eastern Oklahoma today. They are made of zinc alloy and have a silver plated color on the back. Each cuff link is 20-mm in size (a little over 3/4 inch wide). These are not Native American made.
