Authentic Native American Handmade Jewelry
RHODONITE Named for the Greek “rose”, Rhodonite is pink to deep rose color with an intense and beautiful black matrix. Growing in metamorphic rock, Rhodonite is often found with Garnet or other deposits.
OXIDIZED STERLING SILVER is sterling that has been darkened using a surface treatment. This process helps to give the metal a "tarnished" look and is often used to provide contrast within jewelry pieces.
RAINDROPS are seen frequently throughout Native American jewelry. Sterling silver drops or "raindrops" are a traditional design element. They can be smooth and highly polished or they can be starlike and oxidized.
TWISTED WIRE metalworking is a very old technique used by many Southwestern tribes. It can be found in both vintage and modern pieces.
