The Paris Jewellers x Shayla Stonechild limited-edition Arrowhead Necklace was codesigned to amplify the stories of Indigenous women, with 100% of the net proceeds to be donated to the Matriarch Movement.
The necklace features a double chain and an arrowhead pendant made in sterling silver plated with 10k yellow gold. Three delicate diamonds on the arrowhead symbolize our past, present and future.
The arrowhead pendant 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 lineage, a form of protection and moving onward.
The lower four beads on the double chain 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.
For each necklace 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. This donation will be used to provide accessible wellness workshops and resources focused on Indigenous peoples’ healing. 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.
“I am not a statistic. We are not a statistic. We are the Matriarch Movement.”
