Native Traditions in A Fashion Trendy World
Shown here, is just a sample of modern eclectic jewelry, taking it's cue from America's Native Roots. A combination of Mexican Folk Art to Native American Turquoise, it lends to the ever growing fashion trends of today's modern woman, but still giving her the natural earthy feel with a little bohemian babe flirty style.
Most women today that resonate to Western or South American trends, love the wildness that is the raw beauty of Americas Native People. Every piece of jewelry purchased from a native artist, perpetuates their culture and their heritage. By doing so, it allows the buyer an appreciation for a living breathing cultural life style, versus a mass produced knock off. And it allows the artist to support themselves by means of traditional fine arts and craftsmanship.
So when ever you have a chance, support your local artist, and don't just buy, get to know who they are, and why they do what they do. You'll both walk away inspired.
