We only offer hand crafted Native American created authentic jewelry.

They are handmade by various artists from several different tribes. Crafted from sterling silver and accented with gorgeous, natural materials, our vast collection offers unique pieces of wearable art.

Jewelry plays a large role in Native American culture. It tells stories, holds history, and represents spiritual beliefs and cultures of every tribe across America.

Beginning as early as 12,000 years ago, jewelry-making was unique to the respective geographic area of each tribe, featuring natural materials that could only be found in surrounding environments. This allowed tribes to offer slight variations in designs since the supplies necessary to craft these delicate accessories were major trade items. Jewelry-making has evolved in technique and materials used over the years, but still is a primary focus of Native American culture today.

We source jewelry from the Algonquin, Apache, Hopi, Lakota, Navajo, Santo Domingo, and Zuni people.
