Birdell Bourdon, Santa Clara-Tewa

Birdell Bourdon, “Vine Flower,” was born in 1957 at the Santa Clara-Tewa Pueblo. She was taught the family tradition of hand-coiling pottery using ancient, ancestral methods by her mother, the late Marie Sisneros. Birdell specializes in the hand-coiled Sanat Clara black polished pottery, using clay from the tribal pits within the Santa Clara Pueblo. She cleans, mixes, hand-coils, shapes and fires her pottery the traditional way, outdoors with saw dust, and signs her pottery: "Birdell, Santa Clara Pueblo, New Mexico".

Birdell is cited in the following publications:
- Working with Clay
- Collections of Southwest Pottery
- Pueblo Indian Pottery: 750 Artist Biographies.

Seed Pot - Originally seed pots were pottery vessels created to safely store seeds for the following growing season. They were unglazed inside so the seeds could breath. The hole on the top was made small to suit the size of the seeds such as beans and corn. The original pottery version might be 10 inches or more in diameter. Some contemporary artists, in a revival of tradition, are calling attention to the seed pot by making ornate sterling silver miniatures.

Horsekeeping LLC Native American PawnThe Ocean Collection

An avid Native American jewelry and artifact collector lived by the ocean in southern California. When he passed away, he left the fruits of his passion to his son. After a few years, his son lovingly chose a few sentimental pieces to remind him of his dad and sent the rest to us to find new homes for his dad's treasures. You will find some of his items in the Vintage Shop and some that we couldn't verify are Native American made, in the Bargain Barn. Unique pieces wherever they landed.

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewerly 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.
