The story of the rings

As a jewelry maker, Zhaawano's goal is to create simplicity in design. He believes the technique of overlay perfectly fits the purpose.

This set of Ojibwe-style wedding bands, titled ODE'IMIN GIIZIS NIIMIWIN ("Dance of the Heartberry Moon"), is part of the wedding ring line "Respect." These overlay rings with the strawberry ("heartberry") design were made of 14 K white gold; the interiors consist of sterling silver. Marquise-cut red rubies set in 14K yellow gold highlight the oxidized heartberry designs.

Zhaawano created the rings in loving memory of his grandmother, Willa Latham Geertsema, who loved strawberries. Strawberries, or "heartberries" as the Ojibwe Anishinaabeg call them, are symbolic of the Month of June.


This month is called Ode'imin Giizis in Anishinaabemowin, the language of the Ojibwe People. The way Zhaawano stylized the heartberries, suggesting that the plant is a dancing person, refers to the story of Ode'imin, the Heartberry, a boy who left for the spirit world but returned to earth to bring his People Medicine and a system of values and principles of conduct, called MINO- BIMAADIZIWIN.

Ring sizing information

When ordering, make sure to mention the exact size(s) of the wedding band(s) of your choice.

Please note that professional sizing methods are more reliable and accurate than online or at-home methods. Professional sizing can be done at a local, reputable jeweler.

It is important to take into account the width of your band as wider bands typically require a larger size to fit comfortably. It is therefore always best to be sized with a ring sizer (a jeweler's wedding band gauge) of the same width as that of the ring you intend to purchase.

Please note that in case the ring size or sizes relayed by the customer to the jeweler turn(s) out to be inaccurate or no longer up-todate on delivery, all costs for resizing the ring(s) or making new ring(s) will be entirely for the customer's account.
