"Paula says - "In my opinion, this inlay owl set shows all the design characteristics and workmanship of being Zuni made. But because there is no hallmark that we can attribute to a specific artist we can't legally sell it as Native American made - read more.

"This set is NOS (new old stock) that was made more than a decade ago but never sold - it is brand new vintage!"

OWL SYMBOLISM

A night bird with a large head and large eyes. The eyes cannot move in their sockets so the owl can rotate its head up to 270 degrees. With exceptional vision, acute hearing, silent flight, Owl is a stealthy and effective hunter. Native Americans attribute Owl with wisdom and sacred knowledge and call upon Owl medicine to help them see through deception, external appearances and illusion and to discover hidden truths. Plains Indians wear owl feathers to protect against evil spirits.

Our Rescue Mission
of
Native American Indian Jewelry and Artifacts

Native American Jewelry blog tips and informationWe 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.

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