DESIGNED BY AN INDIGENOUS ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENTIST
Beaded earrings have a rich history and cultural tradition. Cultures around the world use beadwork in their art and clothing, and there are currently many beaded earrings available on the market.
This might make you wonder- how do I know which beaded earrings to purchase?
The three things to consider when purchasing beaded earrings include:
Authenticity is an essential consideration before purchasing beaded earrings. Many businesses mass produce and exploit cultural traditions for profit. Cheyanne Symone is an indigenous woman-owned business that employs indigenous beaders.
Beaded earrings and beaded jewelry are a rich tradition, with the techniques to create these earrings passed down through families. Because of the cultural significance, tradition, and time involved with these pieces, it is essential to always buy Native American beaded earrings and other beaded jewelry from an indigenous artist.
Our founder, Brittany, has chosen a professional beadwork artistry path through Cheyanne Symone, as have many of our talented beaders (you can find more about each of them on our About Us page).
While some beaders choose to sell their work, the style isn't confined to a profession, as it holds cultural and spiritual significance. Beadwork is not only used for earrings, bracelets, and necklaces- it is also used for regalia. You'll find beaded regalia in places like powwows, and you can see the artist's personality in the beadwork.
So whether they're made as part of a business venture or for one's friend, family, or self- these earrings are an important part of cultural heritage. For this reason, it is important to purchase beaded jewelry from an indigenous or Native American artist rather than a store where it is mass produced. Authenticity matters.
The quality of a beaded earring is defined not only by the creation process, but by the materials used.
As mentioned earlier, all of Cheyanne Symone’s Native American beaded Jewelry is handcrafted in the USA. We take special care to make sure the materials are as durable as they are beautiful.
Freshwater Pearls come in a wide range of unique shapes and colors. Coming from oysters in lakes and ponds, freshwater pearls have as much character as beauty.
While each set of Native American beaded earrings we make are very similar, due to the nature of the freshwater pearl will vary slightly in color.
The Japanese glass beads are known for their high quality, beautiful color, and consistency. We've paired these glass beads with our Freshwater Pearls because they durable and beautiful.
Our beaded style earrings all come with Large 925 recycled sterling silver posts. We chose these because of the material quality. We want you to know that these posts will last.
A lot of other manufactures try to skimp out on the posts to save costs. We want yours to last forever.
Our earrings are backed by cruelty-free ultra suede. We wanted the durability and feel of suede while also being socially responsible. That's a big part of our company beliefs.
We have built our earrings to last using the best possible materials and handcrafting in the USA. There are few low maintenance steps we ask our customers to take so that your earrings will last a lifetime.
If you follow these care steps, you'll maintain the quality of our earrings and enjoy them forever.
As mentioned above, our earrings come with the Large 925 recycled sterling silver backs. And we also provide you with a natural linen or cotton draw string bag for storage.
Every time we make a purchase, we are essentially telling a business we approve of their products and practices. At Cheyanne Symone, we have made it our goal to do business in a good way.
Cheyanne Symone Earrings are handcrafted by talented indigenous beaders across Turtle Island. Each piece can take between 2 and 8 hours to bring to life. We use natural freshwater pearls that are 100% unique and take a skilled beader to place and assemble.
We do not rely on any machinery or mass production. When you receive earrings from us, you know that they were handmade with love by a talented indigenous beader.
Our earrings include a lifetime repair guarantee. That is unheard of. Why do we offer it? Because we make them correctly the first time.
