|The vastness of this land gives rise to your hopes and dreams. The feathers represent prosperity while the brass beads are for happiness. |
Joy has created this copper shield using her unique method of pounding and embossing. The coloration occurs by sliding the flame of the torch across the metal which is then quickly cooled in water. The copper is mounted on suede matboard. Both the shield and the feathers are protected with a clear sealer.
I will have some other ones available soon.

Large Prosperity Feather
Many Native Americans believe that the gift of a feather is an honor and that it brings Prosperity.
This flamed colored copper feather is protected with a clear enamel. The brass bead is similar to ones used in trade during the 1700 and 1800.
Brass, the color of the sun, symbolizes happiness .
For best results, hang on east wall, east where the sun rises and prosperity begins.
I sell these for $15.
