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. ALL states, except for Kansas, have a small seller exemption for small sellers like me. Hopefully Kansas lawmakers will remedy this situation soon. I apologize for this inconvenience.

Mary Tafoya learned her jewelry making techniques from her parents, by helping them string beads. She says that the old style Thunderbird necklaces inlaid on battery casings or records, that were sold during the depression era along highways or on the plaza in Santa Fe were the inspiration for her work. Using natural stones, shells and turquoise, her designs are free form inlay where no two pieces are alike. Sometimes due to the detail of her work, people think her designs are painted, but they are in fact the natural colors of her materials that have been intricately inlaid. Her unique designs are extremely popular.
