Hi all! I thought I'd present some of my passions I've recently acquired!

I guess we could start with the top earrings on the outside of the stand. I believe these are from the 40's, hard to come by that are this well made and the feathers are thick and solid. In fact they have and extra swag to them that wasn't even see in the 70's, they started to straighten out by then. I love the shadowbox style with the nice bead touch at the bottom. These are marked with STG for sterling and a possible maker mark I can read.

The feather earrings are also very detailed, and yes they may look newer, but I've cleaned them but getting better about leaving some of the patina. I used to take it all off all the time but decided it gives them depth. To each her own on that, right?! these are marked with all caps, sterling, 925 and GW. I love these and keeping ;)

I'm going to skip to the next set of earrings. They are actually my favorite and have been wearing them daily.

Both pair are made of Mercury Dimes, Signed Navajo JMc. I got the squash blossoms first then saw the others and had to have them too.

The bear paw bracelet is made by Navajo R Begay. Now which Begay that is I am not so sure of but I know that I already have the rest of the set that I was wearing daily so it fits right in! And there's a couple more goodies in there that I'm having fun with. All made between the 60's and 70's.

The last pic is not mine but it belongs to someone I just met so I snagged her photo to show to Kyratango. It's an awesome fly, I never thought I would say that! haha

So that's it folks.

I'm enjoying them, hope you do too!
Love to all!!!

    Love the earrings in pictures 2 and 3. Plus the sweet little MOP and turquoise ring in #1 AND yes, the bug in #3 :-) Very nice spread. But, you know me, I like big and bulky bracelets. Why I wonder?

    Gorgeous, Dahling!! You're right to leave some patina, especially on the shadowbox earrings.

    Bonnie, I did finally figure that out. So I don't clean them like I used to. I'm not positive if I'll keep the shadow box earrings yet. Maybe if they weren't posts I know I would, so I just wiped those a little with the jewelers cloth. We'll see. Thanks for stoppin in!

    I think you are challenging Bonnie now, no doubt, as silver guru and ninja.
    I can't go past a LOVE LOVE for the bracelets, both are so wonderful!

    Awe, thanks Karen! If all the silver I have was only white gold!!! Maybe silver IS cowboy (or cowgirl) gold...haha It doesn't hurt to imagine, right?!
