How to Ask Paula a Question for the Blog

If you have a question about your Native American jewelry, you can contact Paula and, if appropriate, she will answer on her blog, Native American Jewelry Tips.

First, research the many articles and Q&As we have already posted below as your question might have already been answered.


Questions Paula will NOT answer:

- Is this item on eBay, etsy, or another internet site authentic?

- What is my item worth?


If you still have a question, email Paula and put this in the subject line of your email:

JEWELRY QUESTION - Your Full Name

In the body of the email, provide details about your item and your specific question(s).

DO NOT SEND PHOTOS UNLESS WE REQUEST THEM.

If the question is something that Paula can help you with, she will request photos.

When sending requested photos, use the same subject line in your email:

JEWELRY QUESTION - Your Full Name

and paste in the details you provided in your first email.

Please attach the photos to the email rather than paste or embed the photos in the email. Make sure each photo has a different name. If you send 4 photos that have the name image.jpg Paula will only be able to see one of them.
