In 2016 I started making a necklace with a silver Kokopelli pendant I've had since I was a kid, turquoise beads, pyrite beads, and they are wire wrapped together with silver wire. I stopped it for awhile because I had other stuff to work on. I then went back and finished it up in 2017. I would got to Sedona in Arizona a lot as a child and there are a lot of Kokopelli art there. Kokopelli is fertility deity in many Native American tribes such as Hopi, Zuni, Yuman, and many more. They tend to look over childbirth and agriculture though they are also a trickster god as well and represent the spirit of music.
