Paula says - "This is not Native American made - it is likely an import imitating a Native American style. The spiderweb Chinese turquoise beads are very nice.

"A rondelle, or roundel bead, is a bead that is not spherical but flattened somewhat, like a saucer."

Vintage Turquoise Rondelle Jacla-Style Necklace

What is a jacla?

Originally, the jacla was a pair of heishi earrings that were tied onto the necklace, as much for storage as decoration. Later, loops of heishi specific for this purpose were tied onto the lower center of the stone necklace. A variation of this is a Jacla with vertical slab or chunk stones at the center or a layered disc with bead loops hanging from the disc. Read more about jaclas.

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThe Auntie T Collection

Old Auntie T had a great eye for vintage Native American jewelry and collected for many years. She often purchased highly collectible, important pieces that had one small stone missing or a very minor area of damage.

When she passed away, she left the items to her niece who admittedly had no interest in them yet was reluctant to let them go. We gladly restored these items to their original glory and are offering them with respect to Old Auntie T. Good eye, Auntie T!!

What is the Bargain Barn?

Our Bargain Barn is a mixed bag of new and used items. They might come from inheritances, estate sales, private collections, and store liquidations. We'll give you as much information as we can, but often the materials, date and origin are unknown.

Bargain Barn items are sold as described and are not returnable.

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts

We 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.

Items that are not Native American made or that we cannot verify as such go into our Bargain Barn where you can find some real treasures at low prices.

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