All of the items I sell are AUTHENTIC Native American made. I purchase most of the new items directly, in person, at the reservations or from the artists themselves. The pawn items are purchased by me, in person, from reputable Southwestern pawn shops with whom I have dealt for many years. Most of the vintage pieces are obtained from friends of my family who run a Western and Native American Art auction house in New Mexico. They have been in business for ages and are very knowledgeable. And finally, my family has dealt in Native American and other antiquities for over 90 years, and I have specialized in Indian Jewelry for the last 25 years. This insures the authenticity of the jewelry I sell and protects your investment.
