Navajo Turquoise And Red Coral Sterling Silver
Navajo Turquoise And Red Coral Sterling Silver Ring. Ring Size: 7 Silver Tested. Estimated more than 50 yrs old. The Navajos are a Native American people of the Southwestern United States. After the Cherokee, they are the second largest federally recognized tribe in the United States. Until contact with Pueblos and the Spanish, the Navajos were largely hunters and gatherers. The tribe adopted crop farming techniques from the Pueblo peoples. The practice of spinning and weaving wool into blankets and clothing became common and eventually developed into a form of highly valued artistic expression. Silversmithing is an important art form among Navajos. Atsidi Sani c. 1830Ðc. 1918 is considered to be the first Navajo silversmith. He learned silversmithing from a Mexican man called Nakai Tsosi "Thin Mexican" around 1878 and began teaching other Navajos how to work with silver. By 1880, Navajo silversmiths were creating handmade jewelry including bracelets, tobacco flasks, necklaces and bracers. Later, they added silver earrings, buckles, bolos, hair ornaments, pins and squash blossom necklaces for tribal use, and to sell to tourists as a way to supplement their income. The Navajos' hallmark jewelry piece called the "squash blossom" necklace first appeared in the 1880s. Turquoise has been part of jewelry for centuries, but Navajo artists did not use inlay techniques to insert turquoise into silver designs until the late 19th century.

Bell Trading Post Native American South West
Bell Trading Post Native American South West Turquoise Sterling Silver Ring. Silver Tested. Ring Size 10. he Bell Trading Company was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1932 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. They sold Native American Indian jewelry at various tourist locations in the southwestern United States until 1972. Estimated more than 50 yrs old. Native Americans also known as American Indians or just simply Indians are considered to be people whose pre-Columbian ancestors were indigenous to the lands within the nation's modern boundaries. These peoples were composed of numerous distinct tribes, bands, and ethnic groups, and many of these groups survive intact today as partially sovereign nations. The Iroquois, living around the Great Lakes and extending east and north, used strings or belts called wampum that served a dual function: the knots and beaded designs mnemonically chronicled tribal stories and legends, and further served as a medium of exchange and a unit of measure. The keepers of the articles were seen as tribal dignitaries. Pueblo peoples crafted impressive items associated with their religious ceremonies. Kachina dancers wore elaborately painted and decorated masks as they ritually impersonated various ancestral spirits. Sculpture was not highly developed, but carved stone and wood fetishes were made for religious use. Superior weaving, embroidered decorations, and rich dyes characterized the textile arts. Both turquoise and shell jewelry were created, as were high-quality pottery and formalized pictorial arts. Navajo spirituality focused on the maintenance of a harmonious relationship with the spirit world, often achieved by ceremonial acts, usually incorporating sand painting. The colors made from sand, charcoal, cornmeal, and pollen depicted specific spirits. These vivid, intricate, and colorful sand creations were erased at the end of the ceremony.
