Porcelain Cherokee Syllabary Bead For Sale

Porcelain Cherokee Syllabary Bead

I offer A Porcelain Syllabary bead. Each bead has inscribed upon it a symbol from the Cherokee Syllabary which was developed by Sequoyah. Each symbol represents a sound, there are eightysix in all. Up until recently I have only made and offered "Totem Beads" with animal names in the Cherokee language. I felt a need to expand this into a more comprehensive palette; enabling one to form the word or words to name anything that presently exists, such as titles, animals, colors, job descriptions,ad infinitum. Keeping in mind there are several consonants not used in Cherokee, even a proper name can be approximated. The consonants not used are: b, f, p, r, t, v, x, z After the beads are formed, they are fired once in the kiln, then stained with ocher and re-fired to 2400 degrees fahrenheit. (I throw in a few sprigs of sage while the second firing is This is a listing for ONEbead,though multiples can be purchased. Feel free to contact me for translation prior to ordering to ensure linguistic correctness, and that way you can be invoiced properly.

All beads will be shipped with a legend showing proper orientation and pronunciation. I offera special discount to those desiring an entire set. Just purchase sixty beads, and put a "message to seller" that you want an entire set on your invoice when going through checkout. (They will arrive strung in columns as shown in the picture #3above.)

Many Teachers, Mothers, and Grandmothers have found having a three-dimensional model at hand greatly enhances one's memorization.This is a small, yet concerted effort towards keeping our language and heritage alive one-bead-at-a-time, Thanks for looking...

In response to everyone's curiosity I have provided some examples:
