Arcana Laughing Dog Talisman

 One of a kind

Arcana, from the Latin arcanus, meaning 'secret'. It was often used in reference to the mysteries of the physical and spiritual worlds. Alchemists were commonly said to be pursuing the arcana of nature. In building this collection of jewelry, gathering the stones to be encased in silver, sketching late into the night symbols and mysteries that swirl around this sacred desert land, ARCANA was born—the pieces are ripe with the secrets and mysteries of nature, our people, our search for meaning, our bone deep ache for true beauty. I hope those who choose to bring these adornments into their lives are met with an undying sense of wonder and beauty upon their path.

The Laughing Dog Talisman, an ode to all that is Coyote and the teachings offered by one of our wisest and most adaptable friends.

There is so much we can learn from this animal that I cannot fit it all here. What I was feeling most in the creation of this piece is their uncanny ability to fully exist in nearly any environment and climate in which they find themselves. Deserts, cities, forests, dry, wet, hot, cold—they are always there, and they keep their jovial trickster spirit intact. We can learn a lot from this lesson alone, exploring the wisdom found when we embrace the things life heaps at us instead of fighting them. Gentle yet fierce, quiet yet vocal, soft yet hardy, Coyote teaches us to navigate the places we find ourselves with grace and laughter.

A stone of Jasper echoes the arroyos and canyons where I walk and often hear the Laughing Dog. I come across their dens that are usually dug into a hillside with views of the valleys ahead.
