August Letter from the Editor: Accessories of Indigenous Admiration

1 year ago Editor's Note0

I dug Down South deep during August and came up with antique Native American jewelry I’m Western wild about — and, of course, I wanted to share with my mavericks.

This month acknowledges this creative, cognitive culture who wore Western accessories of value, elegance and social status.

Dating back thousands of years, Native American jewelry-making includes detailed works of art — from clustered bracelets and multicolored rings to stone-to-stone necklaces and stamp-work rings.

Monthlong we will explore these styles and Native Americans’ heritage during August as we set up camp in one of Columbus’ up-to-the-minute vintage boutiques: The Gypsy Cherub.

Believe you me: This cowhand collector shop is home to rare indigenous pieces to companion your country Western wardrobe for generations to come.

— Ride on!
