Paula says - "This vintage bracelet features a hand-carved turquoise Indian head as the centerpiece. On each side of the head is a real claw capped with sterling silver and a turqoise stone (the claws look to me like mountain lion). The entire sterling silver cuff is stamped and decorated with leaves, flowers, scrolls and raindrops. This is a real treasure!"

An avid Native American jewelry and artifact collector lived by the ocean in southern California. When he passed away, he left the fruits of his passion to his son. After a few years, his son lovingly chose a few sentimental pieces to remind him of his dad and sent the rest to us to find new homes for his dad's treasures. You will find some of his items in the Vintage Shop and some that we couldn't verify as Native American made, in the Bargain Barn. They are unique pieces wherever they landed.

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.
