The jewelry and artifacts in this collection were gathered by a man born in 1933 and who has been collecting for over 60 years. He has a great love of Native American people, their culture and customs and their art. Living and working most of his life in Texas, he has been particularly drawn to Lakota, Comanche, Apache, Pueblo, Navajo and Zuni pieces. We will be listing items from his collection over the next year, so keep an eye on the Newly Listed Items page.
Nickel Silver: It is not actually silver at all! Also called German silver, this popular alloy contains copper, zinc and nickel, but has no silver in it. Also sold under manufacturers' trade names, this material is very hard and generally must be machined. Many people are allergic to nickel and get what is called "nickel itch" when contacting nickel silver.
