Owners of Native American Jewelry.org,
Susanne and William Ernest Waites
affection for Native American Indian jewelry began in 1979, when we returned from
living in Australia.
For 10 years, we sold pieces from our collection at powwows and art
in and around Chicago, IL
In 1990, we moved to Florida and
opened a physical gallery on Sanibel Island. We named it
Art of the First Person" since we handled indigenous tribal
art from several cultures.
In 1995, we opened our first online gallery, as an extension of the
physical gallery. It was a
modest web site complicated by so many variations
that we decided to open separate web sites
for each major genre.
Thus, was born Native-American-Jewelry.org.
In 2005, the physical gallery on Sanibel Island was closed.
In 2007, we moved the
site to a server powered by "green" wind-powered energy.
We now sell Native American Indian jewelry and turquoise on the
Web exclusively (and by appointment
in our home locally).
We also are represented at the Lee County Alliance for the Arts
in Fort Myers, FL gift shop and
BIG Arts gift shop on Sanibel Island (All sales at the
Lee County Alliance for the Arts and BIG
include funds donated to support those groups.)
the physical gallery allowed us to reduce our overhead and our prices.
are proud to represent
authentic Native American jewelry and turquoise
by top jewelry artisans and we guarantee
you will be
satisfied with your purchase when you receive it.

buying Native American Indian jewelry:
Never buy Native American Indian jewelry that you don't love and would
not want to wear forever.
Nothing is more depressing than having to
live with jewelry purchased solely for investment gain that
2) Shop around,
but don't be swayed by price alone. A"bargain" price doesn't
necessarily mean a good
value. Make sure your seller offers authentic
Native American Indian-made jewelry and not foreign
of the Indian Arts and Crafts Association (IACA) agree to the IACA authenticity
and integrity codes.
3) If you can't trust your dealer and its guarantees, don't buy from
it. A good dealer in Native
American Indian jewelry will allow returns
within a reasonable period either for cash or credit.
Ask your dealer
what its policy is.
