Paula says - "Jack Weekoty (also spelled Weekooty) was a Zuni artist born in 1916. He studied under Horace Iule and produced jewelry from 1945-1975. His hallmark, as shown in the photo below, is JW with a design around it that looks like a little shed with a roof and walls however some have interpreted the design as clouds and rain. This is important because a more contemporary Navajo artist, Juliana Williams, also uses the JW hallmark but without the design around the initials."

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThe Auntie T Collection

Old Auntie T had a great eye for vintage Native American jewelry and collected for many years. She often purchased highly collectible, important pieces that had one small stone missing or a very minor area of damage.

When she passed away, she left the items to her niece who admittedly had no interest in them yet was reluctant to let them go. We gladly restored these items to their original glory and are offering them with respect to Old Auntie T. Good eye Auntie T!!

What is Cluster?

There are two similar techniques of using very small pieces of stone to decorate a piece and they are often confused.

Cluster is comprised of long , narrow teardrop-shaped stones that have one rounded end and one more pointed end.

Needle Point is comprised of straight, long, narrow stones that are pointed on both ends.


TURQUOISE is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.

Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones

What is a Bolo Tie?

Native American Jewelry Blog tips and iinformationA bolo tie, also called a “shoestring necklace” or simply a bola, can be thought of as a Western necktie. A bolo tie can range from an inexpensive “string tie” to an elaborate sterling silver and leather affair. Maybe your younger brother had one of those string ties that he wore with his cowboy hat and cap guns ??!!

A bolo has three parts:

  • The cord that goes around the neck is called the lariat. It is traditionally braided from leather, and most commonly black leather. The lariat can also be made from woven cord, thus the term “string tie”.

  • The ends of the lariat are finished off with tips. The tips can be made of sterling silver, copper or other metals. They can be machine made tips or hand made tips.

  • And finally we get to the Pièce de résistance which means the focal point, the best part or feature, the artistic creation for which the other portions exist ! The slide. The slide is a decorative feature that, as its name indicates, slides up and down on the lariat. The slide can be worn up at the neck in the same position as a necktie knot (formal) or down lower for a more casual effect. Slides can vary as widely as the artist’s imagination and can utilize many materials.
