Handmade Inlay Jewelry

Our Inlay Jewelry is handmade by Native Americans in Northern New Mexico.  I have to say, there is no other jewelry quite like this!  You have to know how it is made to really appreciate each unique piece.

First, the silver molds are created from wax moldings.  Then, the artists melt the silver to pour on to these wax moldings. After the silver has been hardened, it is linked by a silversmith.  Next, each stone is shaved down by hand to fit perfectly in the silver moldings (as seen in the picture to the left).  Each color you see is a different stone, and these stones come from all over the world- Brazil, India, Afghanistan, China, and even right here in the United States.  Finally, the inlay piece is polished and is ready for you to wear!  Every inlay piece you will find in any of our stores has been diligently and tirelessly handmade, using exact precision.  When you purchase one of these inlay pieces, know that no one else will have an inlay piece like yours, for no two are alike.  Each piece truly is a work of art!
