2nd Collection Re-launches June 9th
Due to popular demand, we have a limited time release of our 2nd collection with Shayla!
The Paris Jewellers x Shayla Stonechild limited-edition Arrowhead pieces were codesigned to amplify the stories of Indigenous women. For each piece sold, 100% of the net proceeds will be donated to the Matriarch Movement, Shayla’s non-profit organization. Their mission is to rewrite the mainstream narrative around Indigenous women.
Our second collection consists of a sterling silver necklace as well as a pair of earrings available in both sterling silver and 10k solid yellow gold plated sterling silver.
The arrowhead holds significance to Shayla as her grandfather, Ray Oulette found an arrowhead in the backyard of her childhood home. The arrowhead signifies ties to her own lineage, a form of protection and moving onward. We must return to traditional knowledge to protect the land, water, animals, plants and our sovereignty; especially for future generations. We must recognize and reconcile our shared history between Canada and Indigenous people.
Three delicate ethically sourced diamonds on the arrowhead symbolize our past, present and future. The chain is wearable at 18” (45.7cm), 19.5” (49.5cm) and 21”(53.5cm) for increased versatility and layering options.
The earrings feature a 17mm hoop with removable arrowheads made in your choice of sterling silver or 10k solid yellow gold plated sterling silver. The removable arrowhead enables you to create different looks with only one pair of earrings.
Two delicate ethically sourced diamonds on each arrowhead (4 in total) represent the 4 directions, the 4 seasons, the 4 cycles within life and the 4 aspects to our wellbeing: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual; which are the foundations within the medicine wheel. The Medicine Wheel, which has been incorporated into the Matriarch Movement logo, represents the interconnectivity of everyone and everything.
“I am not a statistic. We are not a statistic. We are the Matriarch Movement.”
This donation will be used to provide accessible wellness workshops and resources focused on Indigenous peoples’ healing. The workshops will center on reclaiming their voices, bodies and spirits’ which have been silenced and stolen throughout history. There will be an intertwining of Indigenous knowledge with yogic philosophy; each workshop will focus on balance and harmony through meditation, movement and medicine to assist in reclaiming an Indigenous worldview.
