Paula says - "This vintage bracelet is likely from 1930s when most silver and stone work was done by hand and hallmarks were not yet commonly used. It was around the 1950s that the Navajo Guild and other groups encouraged Native American artists to identify their work with hallmarks." Read about hallmarks.

"This is a chisel cut split shank bracelet, a traditional Navajo and Zuni bracelet form where a solid band is split using a chisel to form two, three or more small bands with the ends left intact. The resulting open spaces allow for ventilation, thus making the bracelets more comfortable to wear in hot and humid weather." Read more . . .

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts

Native American Jewelry blog tips and informationWe are in the vintage Native American jewelry rescue business and are passionate about finding new homes for used and vintage jewelry and artifacts. That's why we purchase Native American pieces from estates, inheritances, collection downsizing and New Old Stock (NOS) inventory from closed stores.

Often people contact us after taking a box of Native American jewelry to their local pawn shop and find that a pawn shop is mainly interested in melt value of the metals and not in preserving the beautiful historic pieces. To hear that people have considered selling these treasures for melt value makes us truly sad.

Melt value is usually far below what we would offer for the jewelry. Yet we can't pay retail price for items because of the time and cost involved in finding new homes for them. We have to research, often repair and restore the jewelry, photograph and list each item on our website, and sometimes hold pieces in inventory for years until the right buyer comes along.

We hope you'll find something special in our vintage shop that will complete yet another circle of our jewelry re-homing mission.


Petrified Wood
is wood in which the vegetable material has been replaced by minerals, usually silica. The silica may be in the form of jasper, agate, chalcedony or even opal. For this process to occur the wood must buried in mud, ash, lake sediment or other material to exclude oxygen and prevent decay. The varied colors of petrified wood are created by minerals such as iron oxide and manganese oxide, that enter the wood in solution with the silica.
