ABOUT SUNSHINE REEVES

Navajo silversmith Sunshine ReevesBorn in Twin Lakes, New Mexico in 1966, Daniel “Sunshine” Reeves is an award-winning Navajo silversmith. He learned silver smithing from his brothers, Andy Cadman, Donovan Cadman, Darrell Cadman, Gary Reeves, and David Reeves - and began producing silver work professionally in 1986. Sunshine works in the Navajo Revival Style, rooted in tradition with eyes toward the future. All of his creations - stamped bracelets, belt buckles, knives, bowls, candle holders, elaborate jewelry boxes - are hand made of his own designs. He has earned many accolades throughout the years, including Best of Show at the Santa Fe Indian Market in 1997 and Best in Class in 1998. Sunshine's work is in the permanent collections of both the Heard Museum and Harvard's Peabody Museum.

ABOUT TURQUOISE

Turquoise is associated with the sky, and bringing sky energy to earth. It is known as a master healer stone as it is believed to help speed the healing process. It is also thought that turquoise can help promote honest and clear communication from the heart.
Turquoise comes in all shades of blue, to blue-green and it is the natural variations in turquoise that make it appealing. The color of turquoise in American Indian jewelry ranges from brownish green to bright blue. Found in veins sandwiched in between layers of mother rock, turquoise can show some of the influence of the mother rock in its matrix or veining. The matrix colors range from blue to golden brown to black and sometimes with golden flecks. Many people prefer turquoise with matrix over clear stones. Read more about stones.

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.
