Beaded Bracelets by Durango Silver Company

Durango Silver Company has collected Turquoise as well as many other Gemstone Beads for over 40 years. We have been making many different types of Beaded Bracelets for nearly 40 years and have been purchasing Beaded Bracelets from various Native American Indians for the duration of the time we have been in business. Originally, we were introduced to Santo Domingo Beaded Bracelets, Beaded Necklaces and other Beaded Jewelry. The Santo Domingo Indians were originally part of the Chaco Canyon Indian culture who were responsible for finding and using Turquoise for spiritual and ornamental purposes nearly two thousand years ago. Today, the Santo Domingo Indians still make a lot of Beaded Bracelets as well as other Beaded Jewelry.

Times have changed and today Durango Silver Company and we make most of our own Beaded Jewelry as well as Beaded Bracelets. It is important to our company as well as our customers that we use authentic gemstone beads as well as authentic Turquoise Beads. We seek out high quality beads of many types of authentic gemstones to make into our Beaded Bracelets and Jewelry which allows us to gaurantee all of the beaded Jewelry we sell to be authentic quality Jewelry from our company.

Turquoise Beaded Bracelets

 Durango Silver Company has been in the Jewelry business for nearly 40 years, we have been collecting Turquoise for over 40 years. Turquoise has always been the specialty of our company and was why we originally went into business. We began collecting Turquoise Beaded Bracelets and Necklaces and then later on started collecting Turquoise Beads and Turquoise Beaded Bracelets at the Gem Shows such as the Denver and Tucson Gem and Mineral Shows. We then started mining Turquoise and sent lots of Turquoise over to China to have made into Turquoise Beads.

Today, Turquoise Beaded Bracelets are a specialty of our company as we have rare old and new Turquoise Beads we use to make ours special and unique from any other company making them. We invite you to view the Turquoise Beaded Bracelets as well as other Gemstone Beaded Bracelets that we currently have available and hope you will remember Durango Silver Company when you are considering Beaded Bracelets in the future.

Navajo Jewelry

American Hand Made Navajo Silver JewelryNavajo Jewelry began around 1865 when a Navajo Blacksmith named Atsidi Sani learned how to work with Silver from the Spaniards that came to the Southwest in search of Silver and Gold. Atsidi Sani was the first Southwestern Native American to create Navajo Jewelry. It was just a short period of time until Atsidi Sani incorporated Turquoise into his Silver Jewelry and thus began a long new trail for the Navajo Indians.

We have created a great informational page on Navajo Jewelry and invite you to read more about this wonderful American heritage. The great American Western Frontier is a special chapter in world history and the history of the Navajo Indians of the Southwest plays an intricate roll in this special time in our American heritage.
