AMERICAN SOUTHWEST COLLECTION
 
This collection often features fetishes ~ tiny animal carvings ~ made  by Native American members of the Zuni Pueblo in New Mexico from naturally shed antler, jet, and various gemstones.  These fetishes, signed by the carvers,  are said to give the wearer those characteristics most prevalent in the animal.

All Collections are created from semi-precious gemstones found all over the world, with added sterling silver components from American artists and 99% pure silver from Thailand Hill Tribe villagers, as well as native artisans in Tibet and Bali. 

A significant portion of our proceeds goes to animal rescue organizations.  I hope you enjoy your visit to the site and that it will encourage everyone to be mindful of the help needed by animal rescue workers world-wide.  

Thank you!
