The spirit dunes of Mishigami

Two stylized sand dunes made of 14K gold against a contrasting gray background of matte titanium are the design features in this unique wedding ring set .

The minimalistic design of the wedding bands  portrays the still dynamics of the sandy shores and magical dune formations and islands of Lake Michigan. Both design and colors are inspired on two legendary islands that lie in nibegomowini-wiikwed, "bay where one waits in the night in the water for game", which is part of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore situated along the northeastern coastline of Mishigami , or Ininwewi-gichigami (Lake Michigan).

These islands, covered with lovely rolling and sparkling white sand dunes rich with beech, oak, maple, white pine, and giant white cedar trees, were named manidoo-minis (spirit island) and manidoo-minisens (small spirit island) by the original Peoples who lived in the forests beyond the dunes. The islands are silent reminders of a beautiful traditional Anishinaabe  story named "The sacred tale Of The Sleeping Bear Dunes", through which the formation of the dunes and Manitou Islands was explained.

Both designs of highly polished yellow gold, which the jeweler riveted to the titanium ring shanks, have complementary forms. The stylized dune of the ladies’ ring features a brilliant-cut white diamond  representing essential marital virtues: dedication, steadfast love and life-long encouragement.

The ring designs of the dunes not only conjure up magic echoes of ancient Anishinaabe lore, they also represent a universal theme of shared love, security, and truthfulness – and understanding your own balance in a relationship - that is deep as the waters of Ininwewi-gichigami /Mishigami  itself…
