Though I am part of an obscure Sect of the LGBT community, I love supporting any orientation in it in any way I can. This necklace is gorgeous, And I look forward to wearing both its beads and its statement with pride.

I really enjoy the craftsmanship of this piece. It is beautiful, and its significance is evident.

As far as I'm concerned, "Second verse, same as the first." Shipping was prompt, and the necklace was packaged safely. I got this one for someone else (as I already bought one for myself), and she loves it just as much as I do.

I love this necklace, and the fact that I literally got the box a day after it was shipped was phenomenal. The claw is in excellent condition, and I love the way it is positioned to lie flat against my skin. The care that was put into the necklace is evident, and I love it already.

This medicine bag is simple, but that's what makes it all the more beautiful to me. The material is so supple, and it is small enough to not be noticed when worn under something sheer. Again, the claw on the bag is in fantastic condition, and the energy potential I can feel in this piece is incredible.

Out of the three necklaces I bought, this one is by far my favorite. The tooth has a good weight to it, and it is in excellent condition. What struck me most was not the piece in its physicality, though. The energy… Oh, the energy I can feel from this necklace is powerful. As a matter of fact, someone else in my family loves this piece so much that I just ordered a second one.

With this necklace, the buyer is encouraged to contact the seller regarding the color they would like for the beads on either side of the tooth. As I am totally blind and didn't have a color preference, this didn't matter so much to me. What matters is that the artist has a little bit of freedom with the pieces I buy. When I indicated my lack of preference, I wasn't sure what to expect… But the beads are absolutely beautiful: a shade of blue that, According to the sighted person I asked, complements this tooth perfectly.

I love this little mug. It's slightly quirky, and the fact that each mug is a little different due to being hand-painted is only a plus where I am concerned. As an added bonus, I can actually feel what is on the mug, which was a pleasant surprise to me as a totally blind buyer.

About

No Power In Plastic

My Real bear and cougar products are no longer allowed on Etsy (only Alaskan natives are allowed to sell them on here) I still have many on inventory please inquire for availability. www.cherokeespirits.com has my full inventory.
For Aiden's background and tribal enrollment and historical documents please follow this link:
http://www.cherokeespirits.com/aiden-s-geneology

I began this Limited Liability Co.
When someone had sold me fake bear claws as a teenager. The man claimed they were real and it was only when drilling them for a necklace I figured out it was plastic on the inside. Plastic could not connect me to the spirit of the bear medicine. After the years went by and attending Boise State University a a friend suggested to look into taxidermy and within a week I was in an apprenticeship. For almost 2 years driving one hour to and from schooling all the while working a 40 hour a week job. When gas prices hit over four dollars a gallon in the valley I had to begin work on my own, unfinished.
I offers quality items that are guaranteed to turn a head or two. Prices here are fair and are one of the lowest on the internet unless you import from Canada and pay CITES fees and import fees. There is no resin claws available for sale to ensure the authenticity of my products.
I come from a long line of Small business owners. I draw a lot of inspiration from my father and his success in his line of small business. I was raised both with Lakota and Cherokee traditions though enrolled Cherokee.
I designed this website for the purpose of allowing people to connect better with their beliefs. There was a time when I was first trying to connect and was mistreated, that wont happen here. There are a lot of people out there who charge an arm and a leg for the products I sell. I help with raptor rehab I fix birds of prey when people shoot them with their guns and maim them with their cars. I live here in Idaho and spend a lot of time following my red path. I am young, I am still learning, I will never know everything. But what I do know I will try to pass on and share. I have spent a lot of time with my crafts, several hours of work and hard labor. Blood, sweat and tears. I am not and my products are not of China.
How does one even put a price on life?
There are ceremonies for every animal whose life and death I come in contact with. When you buy from me you should always consider the heart and soul not only behind the making of the product but the actual being of this animal I CAN NOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH!
A 90 year old Apache elder walked past my booth one day turned and looked at me and said "I know you do things the right way I can feel the medicine in it." She then told me her name and her tribe's name then turned and simply walked off."

With respect and honor my friend and relative. ~ Aiden

Please note teeth and claws etc although sealed are fragile and can crack depending on humidity, temperature change and if dropped shatter. I do not guarantee my teeth to not crack, I take every step possible to seal them to help them last a lifetime but nature will do what it and I can't protect from acts of God.

Usual method of madness is USPS Priority mail fully insured I can expedite shipping at customer's request and expense but contact me BEFORE buying the product.

Exchange only on all returns or in-store credit must be in same condition as when shipped all packages are shipped insured.

Is there up-keep to this product?

As with all natural things they will want to deteriorate. The ultimate enemy of my products is MOISTURE! Bacteria live and breed in moisture and wet climates. To ensure your product has a long life do NOT allow it to get wet, a few rain drops wont hurt but I do NOT suggest showering, submerging, swimming, sweat lodging ect with any of these products.

Warranty

Rain Warrior's products are nature made. Claws break, teeth crack and bones chip. There is no warranty on the actual animal item,claw or tooth things. Everything possible to ensure this product lasts a very long time has been taken. So long as the product is taken care of in a respectful manner it should last a while. All claws are cleaned, polished and sealed as are all skulls bones etc. If buyer chooses for me to not seal the items it is at the buyers risk. All items ship insured if damaged by mail you will have to submit to me the required information for me to be able to refund you. With daily wear a clasp or string can breakIf this happens to you Rain Warrior will fix or replace it free of charge so long as the business is in standing. Cherokee Spirits will not replace claws/teeth etc. that are lost or broken when this happens as I can't be responsible for natural occuring wear on cord or life iteself. Some of my necklaces have lasted over 5 years on this cord. Cords are made of 100% natural cotton material NOT leather as leather breaks within 2 months of use and rots with body sweat. However if the buyer wants to pay more to have it strung on wire Rain Warrior will do so. Buyer will pay all shipping both ways to have any and all repair done. Please purchase insurance as Cherokee Spirits will not be held responsible for lost or damaged property in the mail. Again these are natural materials made by mother nature. Rain Warrior does her best to make all products carefully and will work with you to make sure you are not dissapointed but can not protect against lifes happenings. Thank you for understanding items are under warranty for 30 days after purchase. Necklace clasps and string I will repair again, so long as business is in business.
