Hi @stracci2000 I'm so glad you appreciate them as I do, and that this kind of jewelry has found a wee corner of pricescopeYou are killing me, woman!! Your pieces are freaking fabulous.
Now you must tell me about your interest in Northwest NA jewelry. Perhaps you are a tribal member?
My DH is a member of the Isleta Pueblo here in NM.
Yes, you must come visit!Hi @stracci2000 I'm so glad you appreciate them as I do, and that this kind of jewelry has found a wee corner of pricescope
I started my collection when I was a young woman. The pieces are very affordable where I live but particularly when you buy them in the early stages of the artist career, as all of mine are. I mainly confine myself to silver as the gold pieces can get costly, at least for my budget
I also collect the wool cowichan sweaters knit by the women of the cowichan band. That's my real passion, those sweaters. I buy vintage ones, and repair them. The older ones have better quality wool.
I'm not PNW tribal, my grandmother was metis/Huron Ahhh, NM. It's my dream to visit it and now I have a friend there to visit as well!
I have just learned a little about the Tlingit people (but more about the Aleuts) after reading the entire series about investigator Kate Shugak set in Alaska written by Dana Stabewnow. I never saw any Tlingit jewelry!

Yes, it is there! Post #282@stracci-
We do have a thread on traditional charm bracelets. I have not gone to check to see if yours is already there. If it is not, would you consider adding it? I love charm bracelets and yours is lovely, very full.
Can you show us your traditional charm bracelets? I love charm bracelets, and the stories behind them. Would love to see yours. I''ll post pics if my camera battery decides to charge again! But, here''s the story on mine: First charm bracelet I got later on in elementary school. It had a few...www.pricescope.com
Find your style and go from there. I adore deep carving and minimal cross hatching (Alvin Adkins). Some of the newer artists are using lasers to cut out very fine detail, much smaller than the traditional saws. I'm old school myself but I can appreciate it.I think its fabulous.......I may need to get some of these pieces!
The ancient Pueblo people used the turquoise they found here in New Mexico, Arizona and Nevada. Some of the mines are very famous, like Sleeping Beauty mine in AZ, and the Cerrillos mine in NM. I believe these have both been mined out, unfortunately.Those pieces are very beautiful, the colors are striking! Can you tell me more about this style of jewelry? Also a little about the materials used? So very different from out local bands artwork, but I feel the desert in them?
