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 Ininiwak (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. Originally, the website was set up as a joint art project; a dynamic platform for showcasing written stories and poetry and fine art by himself and by Simone McLeod, a kindred Anishinaabe artist from Saskachewan who passionately draws from the same cultural and artistic source as he does.

In today's spotlight:
The Sun, the Moon, and the Stars: these one-of-a-kind wedding rings, which Zhaawano crafted by hand from black zirconium, with inlays of 18K yellow, white, and red gold, testify to the sleek and mysterious beauty of polished zirconium, metal of the planets.
The title and the design of this zirconium wedding ring set refer to the night sky and the Spirit Nation that dwells there, headed by Grandfather Sun, Yellow Sky Woman also called Grandmother Moon, and the star constellations.
Gold inlay is used for the moon and the sun; this is done by hammering round, respectively white and yellow gold, rivet wires into both ring shanks. The star world is symbolized by smaller rivet wire of red gold; in the men’s ring waaban-anang, the morning star, is positioned behind the sun; the ladies’ ring shows ningaabii-anang, the evening star who rises behind the moon.
