ethnic jewels

An appreciation of ethnic jewellery and adornment

Just wanted to share some new Native American jewelry that I think is particularly beautiful and high end. It is called night sky inlay and is exactly that -- depictions of the night in the southwest via micro-inlay. There are some very noted artists who make this and it goes for very high prices. I love this jewelry, it is so magical to me and I love the way that Native Americans are constantly creating new design via old methods.This is a particularly large cuff, but there are brooches, bangles, torques, lots of different types embellished with different visions of the night sky.

This is so beautiful, Patti. I will keep a look out for more.

Amazing intricate work. I LOVE Native American jewelry. Thank you for sharing this beautiful piece.

So true, Alaa, a wonderful amalgam

Patricia you write, a large cuff.  Do you mean a large brooch? Looks like very skilled work. Beautiful and effective inlay.  I am also an admirer of their work which I find also so well finished. Gr, Ingrid.

Actually, it is advertised as a cuff, so I just believe  that the bracelet part is hidden by the grandeur of the night scene. Yes, really love this kind of jewelry and this piece in particular.
