The style of the Southwest U.S. has evolved from the traditional neutral earth-tone palette and rough edges to a variety of bright colors, patterns, and textures. While the handcrafted look and quality is still apparent in the new high end collection from TurquoiseJewelry.com, the cues taken from all the cultures that make up the Southwest have taken some interesting turns.
The Southwest U.S. is a woven texture of blended cultures, traditions, and techniques. The legacy of the Native American tribes that have dominated that landscape are evident in everything from naming of cities to local art. With Mexico bordering the Southwest states, the rich and vibrant Latin culture has also seeped into the traditional Southwest style. These varied styles have forged into a new style all its own.
TurquoiseJewelry.com represents this merging of styles in their new high end collection. Cuff bracelets made of sterling silver have taken on new asymmetrical shapes accented with a delicate balance of carvings and stones. The use of stones with uneven shaping echoes the affinity Native Americans have for Mother Earth and her bounty. The twists in use of irregular shaped stones or finely cut stones ensures there is a piece fit for every style and occasion.
A common motif used among Native American artisans is the Native American Village or Pueblo Design scene. These scenes can depict villages during day or night. Each version elegantly uses a variety of stones to color each scene perfectly. These scenes are delicately inlayed by hand, making each piece a one-of-a-kind treasure.
“While our new high end collection features several Native American handcrafted pieces, we also have items that draw inspiration from the colors of a desert sunset. We’ve mixed these colors with cool blues and refreshing greens,” explains Jack Burch, spokesperson for TurquoiseJewelry.com. “We looked for the best representation of these standard styles and then kept searching to add modern twists of the Southwest cultural landscape.”
Whether the style is modern, Native, or traditional Southwest, the new high end collection from TurquoiseJewelry.com has a little bit of everything to satisfy any style appetite.
