Coyolxauhqui's Nose Ring| Ceremonial Nose Ring| Septum| Back to the Ancestors
From the signature line "Back to the Ancestors" this nose ring was created in 2017 as the first ofrenda to the ancestors that came to me in my dreams. I dreamt of rotten ofrendas, the temples of Teotihuacan, and the Maya twins Xbalanque and HunahPu. The creation of this body of work has lead me on an unbelievable journey back to the motherland and the reclamation of my name and path. All of the jewelry in this line has been blessed at sacred sites, ceremony, and in danza over their 6 year pilgrimage. This body of work marks a beginning to the line of work I will be pursuing here onward.
This nose ring can be worn as a septum or side nose ring. It is a clicker with surgical steel, for the insert. What you see is hand-sculpted and inspired by Coyolxauhqui's nose ring and immortalized in copper.
This nose ring is a Power Piece, designed to help you align with the phases of the moon and help you speak wisdom. You are taking home a piece of art, and a piece of my heart. Blessings.
