On the road now; new finds will post this fall!
"High Plains Jewelry" is the web presence of High Plains Drifter, Indian Trader, winner of the "Best Display" award in the New Mexico State Fair (1991 and 1992), and "Best of Show" in the Chisholm Trail Roundup/Comanche Pow-Wow at the Fort Worth Stockyards (1994). The Drifter's clients range from Hollywood to Washington, D.C., and many countries. Since 1976, he's traded with Native Americans of New Mexico and Arizona. Also a journalist and a lawyer, the allure of the American West and its native people have always captivated the Drifter. And now he lives the good life--roaming back roads of the Navajo, Zuni, and Hopi lands, continuing a trading tradition that dates back through the ages. The Drifter is old-school, preferring classic Native-American jewelry--made sturdy and with a substantial "feel."
Each item is personally "hand-picked," resulting in unique and prized pieces. No telephone, catalogue or internet-acquired things will do. But prize pieces are disappearing—going to collections both here and abroad. Unfortunately, they aren't being replaced.
"High Plains Jewelry" is the David of the many Goliath's one finds on the world-wide web. The selection here is small but grand—and ever-changing.
We think the discerning collector will be pleased.
