Native Woodland artist Zhaawano Giizhik presents to you with a grateful heart his art project named Fisher Star Creations, a venture of unbound Love, Vision, and Creativity in the ancient and sacred tradition of the Anishinaabe and Ininewak (Cree) storytellers. The traditional, allegorical narrative of the constellation of the Fisher Star, Zhaawano's favorite tale, runs through his blood and his works of art. As a jewelry artist and storyteller at heart Zhaawano offers you an exciting variety of exclusive handcrafted jewelry and wedding and clan rings. The website was originally set up as a joint art project; a dynamic platform for showcasing written stories and poetry and, occasionally, fine art by himself and by kindred artists who draw from the same cultural and artistic source as he does.

Zhaawano's Talking Pieces: contemporary storyteller jewelry and wedding rings - inspired by Native American Anishinaabe Clan & Storytelling traditions
ZhaawanArt Fisher Star Creations is proud to offer you a great variety of one-of-a-kind, highly finished Native American-inspired wedding rings, wedding jewelry, storyteller jewelry, and clan rings, all made of Eco-friendly gold, silver, platinum, and various other metals.
Throughout the years Woodland Art jeweler Zhaawano, who usually handcrafts his talking pieces from materials like 14 or 18K gold, sterling silver, platinum, palladium, zirconium, titanium, steel, and precious stones, developed a distinctly personal style, drawing on traditional Native American silver and goldsmithing techniques as well as on Ojibwe (Anishinaabe) form and symbol, yet adding his own contemporary sense of color and design. Each and every piece, designed and made by hand with a special prayer, tells a unique story; every single project that leaves his workbench shows certain personal touches of his artistry, his individual style showing through the larger traditions.
