Business

Our Business

For more than 50 years, we have been a family-owned business providing unique Native American accessories. Our team does not sell imported items, only jewelry handcrafted by artisans from all tribes.

Started

How We Started

A father and his son used to trade sewing machines and rugs for jewelry. They swapped goods with the locals of a Native American reservation. Eventually, the son became fascinated with the community’s jewelry craftsmanship. He and his father then decided to take monthly trips to the reservation. Their goal was to trade merchandise that they would sell to a trading post along old Route 66.

Successful

A Successful and Lucrative Business

Later, the son founded his own jewelry manufacturing company and hired Native American silversmiths from reservations. They have been handcrafting impressive jewelry for more than 45 years. The son also became a father himself and now runs the company along with his family. Our items are found in many stores, boutiques, and resorts across the US.

Craft

We’re proud to have well-known Navajo artists create jewelry for us. Some of them include Wilburt Denetdale, James Yazzie, Kathy Yazzie, Albert Jake, Derrick Gordon, and Peterson Johnson. From start to finish, our silversmiths are dedicated to producing one-of-a-kind designs.
