Taking a page out of Francia’s Style Notebook I noticed she’s been wearing some of our vintage Navajo jewelry with her more contemporary pieces.
Take this piece for example. Hand crafted from handmade sterling ‘bench beads’ with natural turquoise, this necklace looks great with almost any summer outfit.
Another classic, this traditional storyteller ring is hand crafted by Navajo artisan Francis Tabaha. This charming ring has a solid 14K gold overlay – many of the contemporary rings have a gold-filled overlay which is just a thin layer of gold over a brass base.
Artist signed and fully hallmarked – a beautifully crafted work of jewelry art.
And finally – what really makes some of this Vintage Native American Jewelry fun is the sheer size of some pieces.
This vintage 1970’s bracelet is one example. This is just a stunning work of art. Hand cast and tooled from Sterling silver and set with a moss green turquoise stone. Amazing workmanship and it’s big!
We are receiving new pieces of these vintage Native American works of art each week. We have representative examples of early Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi designs in rings, bracelets, pendants and pins.
Stop in soon to see our latest selections – before Francia scoops them all up!
