Turquoise Skies, About Us

Thank you for visiting our community and webstore!

Turquoise Skies is a socially responsible, culture driven premium handmade authentic Native American Jewelry and art community. The primary initiative of this site is to create transparency in the Native American Art industry. We would like to provide clear information about everything related to Native American culture and create an easy way to connect with artists. We are located in Albuquerque, New Mexico and all the art on this website is made by local Native American artists in the New Mexico area. If you are an artist and would like to sell your art or jewelry on our website please contact us through the contact form on this site.

We would like to acknowledge the true authors of the Turquoise Skies. Without the hard work from the passionate Native American artists who have contributed their skill and time, this website would not be possible.  We simply pass along what we can.  To all the artists, thank you for sharing your sacred knowledge, art, and culture with all of us.

Fighting for a Cause

We believe in the value of culture. We also believe that change and modernism is natural.  With that being said, increased commercialism and mainstream business practices, some of the core standards that make us unique have become diluted. We believe that there is a correlation between art and culture. Art is a product that directly reflects the qualities of a culture.  When art is quality, authentic, and made from the heart then culture is enriched.  When art is mass produced for the purposes of making profit, then it loses its soul, and culture is devalued.
