have a life long love affair with Native American jewelry. My
grandparents sold turquoise jewelry at their resort on Fort Gibson Lake in
Oklahoma beginning sometime in the late 1950’s. Their shop, White Eye
Traders, was once listed in the book Zuni: The Art and the People as a
trusted shopping resource for authentic Zuni jewelry. My grandmother took
silversmithing classes at Bacone College in Muskogee and taught my
grandfather. At the same time as a small child I used to be blessed with many gifts of
turquoise jewelry to wear. One Christmas, my grandfather made a turquoise
and silver bridle for my horse and a matching belt buckle for myself. I
have such fond memories of them. They were both very talented artists.
In 1986, I began my own business selling at trade shows around the United
States. Now I only sell online and enjoy living on my farm raising and
training thoroughbreds. My mother and brother still commute and are long
time vendors on the Wisconsin State Fair, Minnesota State Fair, National
Western Stock Show, and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Native American jewelry has at all times fascinated me for several reasons, mostly
because it’s so beautiful and distinctive. It’s unlike anything else in
the world, nothing compares. Each and every piece is a murals, showcasing the
artist’s own unique style. Silver jewelry is a big a part of the culture
in the Southwest. Many Native American families in the Southwest depend on
source of revenue from selling their handcrafted goods. So Whilst you purchase
authentic Native American arts and crafts, you might be supporting the traditions
and livelihood of our Native American tribes. Whilst you imagine that
Native American jewelry is handcrafted from real silver and genuine gemstones,
It’s one of these great value, in truth, a real bargain. I pay fair prices to
artists and I attempt to offer the jewelry at fair prices to the customer.
This helps to keep the merchandise moving so we together can give a boost to more artists and
