Paula says - "These vintage hair pins each have fourteen petit point turquoise stones.

In my opinion, these hair pins show all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Native American made. But because there is no hallmark that we can attribute to a specific artist we can't legally sell them as Native American made." read more

What is Petit Point?

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

Petit Point 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.

NOTE: Items in our Vintage Shop are either USED or NEW. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. Many items are brand new (NOS, New Old Stock) and in perfect condition while others may show tarnish, scratches and other signs of use. Major issues will be described in detail and shown in photos. Vintage Shop items are sold as described and are not returnable.

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.
