Liquid Silver

Many of our silver pieces are old and well-patinated. These liquid silver necklaces show their age well.

It's been said that as a person matures (well, frankly, as you age), you get the countenance you've earned. So it is with old silver - it has the look it deserves. We would no more like to see the fine character these pieces have developed over the years erased with a bright-new polish than we'd like to see great-grandma get a facelift.

We recommend you enjoy them for what they are - add a bit of your own character as you wear them.

First produced by master Santo Domingo Pueblo heishi-maker Ray Rosetta in the late 1940s, the crafting of handmade liquid silver has become a popular modern tradition in Native American jewelry.
