Paula says: "In my opinion, this money clip shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Navajo made. But because we can't attribute the MS hallmark to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made.

"Are you wondering why this item is not described as Native American? You can find the answer by clicking here."

The stone bezel, border and backing is sterling silver. The clip portion is stainless steel.

Zuni Inlay Money Clip as a paper clip

Paula says - "A classy money clip provides a great way to keep your cash organized while carrying around some Native American art. It can also be used as a book marker or a big paper clip on your daytimer or planner."

Why isn't this item called Native American?

The US Department of the Interior Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 and its recent Amendments require that items described as Native American or Indian be made by an enrolled member of a federally recognized tribe. Furthermore, government regulations suggest that all attributions include the Native American Indian's name, tribe and federal tribal enrollment number. Because it is impossible to identify the artist for many vintage items, even if they are authentic Indian made items, we cannot and will not use the words Native American or Indian in association with such pieces.
