Spring Marketplace

A fresh look at some of the finest Native jewelry, crafts and accessories from B Yellowtail, Louie Gong, Cody Sanderson and other great designers.

All My Relations Blanket

This new blanket of New Zealand wool (ab0ve) was created by one of our favorite designers, Bethany Yellowtail in partnership with Louie Gong’s Eighth Generation. The pattern unites design elements of the Crow and Northern Cheyenne, traditional rivals, and speaks to Yellowtail’s heritage. The collaboration is the first in Eighth Generation’s Groundbreakers collection. It’s big enough to cover a queen-sized bed. $240 eighthgeneration.com

Mediterranean Coral Bracelet 

A cuff by Navajo artist Cody Sanderson is on the wish-list of any fashion-minded man or woman. This sterling silver stamped and textured flower bracelet was designed by Sanderson and Mary Irene. The Mediterranean coral is set in an 18k gold bezel, and measures 5 ¼” with a 1 1/8” opening. It’s one-inch wide. $1,200.00 waddellgallery.com

Floral Print Necktie

With floral designs of the Native American woodlands bursting in color, this necktie was designed by Tammy Beauvais (Mohawk) for part of her menswear collection. Naturally, her women’s fashion line and athletic gear is equally tantalizing. $45.00 tammybeauvais.com
