We just got back from our annual spring buying trip where we seek out the new and beautiful items made by Native American artists in the southwest US.
Here is what we found. No surprise here. Because the prices of silver and gold are higher, the price of Native American jewelry is higher.
But you might not know this. Small things like earrings, pins and light bracelets are just not being made, so are not available.
Medium weight pieces are not as readily available as last year and those that are cost 1 1/2 to 2 times what they did last year this time. The same item we might have purchased last year at 65 grams for $150 looks pretty much the same but now weighs only 52 grams and costs $225.
Heavy, quality pieces are available and they are where it seems artists are focusing their time.
So we have begun listing the treasures.
