Our jewelry is made in homes and small workshops in remote areas of the Navajo and Zuni Native American reservations of New Mexico and Arizona.
The Navajo and Zuni tribes have been famous for their jewelry artistry since the late 1800's. The Navajo tribe is known for producing detailed and elaborate Sterling Silver pieces. Zuni artists are famous for their fine stone cutting which allows for intricate inlay designs and unique channel set patterns.
Both tribes are located in the western New Mexico and Arizona desert. This area is home to 350,000 indigenous people, many of whom struggle to find resources and opportunity in this sparsely populated area of extreme desert terrain.
Fortunately, both the Navajo and Zuni have a rich artistic culture that has been passed down to each generation. Today, over half of all families on the reservation have at least one family member producing handmade art for sale. We are proud to support these artists by developing collaborative projects that provide employment through the artistic expression of their culture.
