A totem is a spirit being, sacred object, tribal emblem. For me the totem stands for wisdom and powers that we as humans have and always had, but we forgot how to use it! If you have chosen this necklace, you are a strong woman and you are not afraid to show it…this necklace was designed to attract attention and showcase your bold style! Handmade pyramids parts and chain are made from 24k gold plated brass. All of my items come beautifully wrapped in a gift box. Do not use perfume or water on this jewelry.
