ABOUT OUR SHOP
Postage, delivery, etc.




 

The American Southwest evokes many images. Deserts of sagebrush and cactus flowering in springtime. Navajo Indians herding sheep and weaving colourful wool rugs.

Ten gallon hats, rawhide fringe, and tooled leather boots from the Wild West days of cowboys, gunslingers, and hanging judges. Pottery, rugs and baskets. Turquoise and coral silver jewellery. Indian jewellery!

Perhaps of all the Southwestern images, turquoise and silver is the one most widely shared. Indian jewelry has been made for centuries; today it is created, worn and sold almost everywhere in the Southwest.

From ancient times to the present, Indian jewellery has been a uniquely American art form. Wilde Ones has in some small way tried to recreate this environment in the tiniest little corners of its shop in London and give a small glimpse into the world of the Native American Indians of today.

The emergence of the Native American facet of the shop came about naturally as I grew up in California and in my formative years had many opportunities to travel to the American Southwest. I had always been interested in Indian life and art and didn't realise how interested people over here would be.

I continue to travel and bring back many interesting and unique items made by the Natives themselves. The recent interest in fashion has spurned a whole variety of fakes and cheap foreign imports. Real Native American work is rare and to the experienced eye obvious when copied or when using simulated blue stones.

It is with this knowledge and experience that we guarantee that all our stones are real unadulturated turquoise and coral, and all the silver is 925 sterling which is the highest quality silver found. On some of the antique pieces this is more difficult to prove as they did not use the 925 or the sterling stamp, and silver bullion was not as readily available to the silversmiths. Hence coins of the time were melted down to make the family jewellery.These days you can still find some of these coins being reused in belts, buttons, earrings etc.

Aside from jewellery we also have many decorative items such as shields, bow and arrows with quiver and quirt beautifully decorated beaded and fringed. Basketry, pottery, stone carvings and wool blankets are among the many other things that we carry. We look forward to serving all your Native American requirements in the near future!
