So happy you found the little inlay that went MIA for a few days..it is exactly what I was hoping it would be! And the little ďextraĒ you added is SO sweet! They go great together. I actually had compliments on both of them the first day I wore themÖlike the next day after I got them!! The saddle bags are also exactly what I was expectingÖleather in great condition and the size, buckles, all of it! Thanks again! Love, love, love doing business with you! ;-)" - michelle

"Super fast mailing [watch cuff], love it, thanks!! - P.T.

"Yesterday I received your most beautiful Alan Monroe Lakota Eagle Willow Dreamcatcher and Kangi Pejuta Smudge kit with feather. These are exquisite. Your packaging was perfect.

And thank you! :-)" - Dawn
"Just letting you know I got the package today safe and sound. We had a customs tax change recently (1 July) that probably caused a bottleneck at our border, as it seemed to sit in Sydney for a while, but thatís not normal- and I didnít mind anyway! Thanks very much, they are both beautiful." - Georgina
"Received my order today. I am thrilled with the craftsmanship. These Items are beautiful.

"I can feel your love and respect for the original people of this land. Itís beautiful. Anyways, thank you for all the content you are sharing on your website. It is so informative." - Marc
"I am writing to say thank you for the knowledge you have and are sharing regarding horses. I am volunteering with a small nonprofit (Rangerís Legacy Equine Rescue) in central New Mexico (my home state). Out of all the books I have read, yours by far, are the most insightful and well written. Your books have given me the knowledge and confidence to be more hands on with the horses. It requires lots of love, understanding, patience and skill to take an abused or neglected horse and nurse them back to health, correct any behavior issues and find them a forever home. Again, thank you so very much!" - RSL, MSW, BSW Sergeant First Class, United States Army
"Thank you very much for the fast shipping of this order everything was as ordered thank you." - David
"Thank you, itís very generous of you to put so much time into sharing your knowledge. I used to run a website myself and itís a lotta long hours put into it. You really got to love what your doing to do it. Itís funny you can search ďNavajo jewelryĒ online and get 30,000 hits of items for sale but there are only a handful of sites with much useful information and yours is one of the best!" - Matthew

"Just to let you know the concho/concha earrings arrived while I was out of town and are just as I hoped. The design is identical to 9/16" ones I have had since the 1980s, my favorite everyday earrings, but the kitten hid one of them and will not reveal where he put it. The new smaller ones are a near perfect match, only 1/16" larger. Matching an earring from 1980s Albuquerque was a challenge, but after a long search I found them on your website. The larger ones were just a treat for a successful search." - T
