I am selling my personal lifetime Native American Jewelry Collection which I started 50 years ago. None of my children have any interest in my collections so it is time for someone else to enjoy my special pieces. Someone once said to me, "It's like you lease your artwork, jewelry and other collectibles to enjoy your lifetime and then they go to someone else during their lease and enjoyment period." I had never thought about things like that before, but I agree and it makes me feel better. I'd like my special pieces to go to someone who will appreciate and enjoy them.

The photos and descriptions are in the same order so please refer to the photo number when you call or email me.
I am happy to email additional photos or to answer any questions you may have about these items. My next CL Ad will be for Native American PENDANTS and RINGS so please watch for them.
