Pyramid Lake PBS Wild Nevada Pendant
It’s a place that looks different, and feels different every time I visit. Nestled in the rolling sagebrush of Nevada’s high desert, Pyramid Lake is the ancestral homelands of the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe and beholds some of the oldest human histories in Nevada and the American West. This pendant was inspired by Pyramid Lake, the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout (Nevada’s State Fish), and the thousands of people who have lived here for thousands of years.
This Ackerman Canyon Varscite looked very similar in coloring and celebrates the Lahontan Cutthroat Trout, and is part of a YouTube series where I make Nevada-inspired Song Dog Silver pieces out in the Great Basin. What’s even more exciting is I made this pendant and wore it while guest hosting an episode of PBS’ Wild Nevada about Pyramid Lake—be sure to tune in on its 12/28 air date.
This Ackerman Canyon Variscite was mined and made into a cabochon by Denver Otteson. Backed by sterling silver, this Pyramid Lake-inspired stone is about quarter-sized and ready to wear with a 16″ or 18″ sterling silver chain of your choice. When ordering, please indicate which chain length you’d prefer.
Each purchase comes gift wrapped, along with a silver polishing pad for optimal flashiness and a complimentary Song Dog Silver sticker.
