Paula says - "This vintage sterling silver concho belt was hand wrought using repousse and traditional stamped designs. The belt buckle has four oval turquoise stones and each concho and butterfly have one oval turquoise stone.

"We’ve left this old piece AS IS, the same condition in which we received it, because the historic condition is so very appealing. We estimate that it is from before 1950.

White Buffalo Navajo Pawn Collection Wolf Collection

This collection consists of a group of very old items that are most likely from the 1920s to the 1950s, due to being able to date a few of the pieces. These are part of the treasure trove gathered by a woman in her beloved travels in the southwest. They were tucked away in her home, only to be recently discovered by her daughter, who sold the collection to help with expenses for her dog and wolf rescue.

We’ve left most of the items AS IS, the condition in which we received them, because the historic condition is so very appealing


WOLF teaches great dignity, courage, powerful Spirit communications, instinct and intelligence. Deep family connection and importance, stealth, wisdom, and extreme endurance. Wolf is a powerful ally on our spiritual journeys.

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
