What I want people to take away from my articles is that Native American art and culture is rich and diverse across the various tribes.

With the influx of faux Native jewelry, art, and designs flooding the market over the past year, people are left reeling, finding it difficult to trust brands that list “Authentic Native American” jewelry or clothing. Jewelry expert and enthusiast, Joy Cook, had a few ideas on that subject and has compiled the ultimate guide to help people find and identify authentic Native American jewelry when they see it online or in-stores.
NativeAmericanTurquoiseJewelry.net has been a well-spring of knowledge and resources for anyone looking for Native American, Southwestern, or Turquoise jewelry tips. This site is a dedicated blog that Cook owns and operates herself, having years of experience buying and selling these items. Over the decades, Cook has amassed an impressive collection and had dedicated her site to helping others interested in jewelry of the Southwest region.
Cook’s latest release, “How to Choose Native American Jewelry” is dedicated to helping people find authentic Native American jewelry, after its rise in popularity in 2016. The blog articles go through the various details that make up traditional Native American pieces and teach people to look at items sold in-store or online with a skeptical eye.
Cook gave a few comments on this new release as well. “What I want people to take away from my articles is that Native American art and culture is rich and diverse across the various tribes. People need to look at what the seller is saying as well. If the piece is being sold as “Navajo” then all a customer needs to do is search for examples. They will find that Navajo typically work with silver and some of their more famous pieces are the crescent-shaped necklaces known as najas.”
Cook believes that a simple amount of research is the best way for customers to arm themselves with the information they need to find quality Native American jewelry.
Cook also wants to invite people to her blog to learn more about Native American and Southwest jewelry in-depth. Her blog posts are dedicated to popularizing talented Native artists and their work and teaching people about what makes Native art and culture so relevant and beautiful today.
