TUMBLEWEEDS JEWELRY
Genuine Native American Indian Navajo Zuni Hopi Kewa Sterling Silver Jewelry
Effective October 1, 2019, I can no longer sell or ship jewelry to customers residing in the state of Kansas due to Kansas's extremely complicated remote seller sales tax laws. In order to ship to Kansas, I would be required to collect and remit city, state and local sales tax on all items shipped to Kansas. There are more than 900 different sales tax jurisdictions in Kansas. ALL other states in the U.S. have a small seller exemption for small sellers like me. Hopefully Kansas lawmakers will remedy this situation soon. I apologize for this inconvenience.

About Mokume gane: Mokume-gane is a rare and complex 17th century Japanese process of fusing metals, originally used by Japanese craftsmen for the adornment of Samurai's swords. Using this technique, Shane creates random swirling patterns out of fused layers of mostly silver and copper, or gold in five steps - heating, hammering, grinding, milling and fabricating the metal into sheets.

Using the Japanese technique in my jewelry is not only symbolic of the way I walk in two worlds, but also a physical representation of that. These techniques are virtually unused by other Indigenous jewelers do to the high level of skill required to perform them. As an artist, I continually strive to physically manifest my core values with art: balance and harmony.
