We recently purchased items from the personal Native American jewelry collection of a Lumbee-Cheraw woman. The Lumbee-Cheraw tribe is from North Carolina. She received these pieces from 1989-2002 as gifts for various accomplishments such as scholarship, graduation and promotions. Some pieces are from that era and some are from much earlier - the 1960s and 70s. She understood that all of the pieces were Native American made and were Sterling Silver. She provided us with a few artists' names. Others we recognized and researched using our experience and our Native American references. As always, we will tell you as much as we know for certain and suggest possible artists when the artist is unknown. Enjoy browsing this varied and beautiful group.
