Silver and Gold Feather Jewelry

Due to the popularity of our feather jewelry collection, we have dedicated this section to this remarkable hand made gold and silver jewelry. Please select one of the picture above to view our authentic Native American feather jewelry collection of rings, pendants, earrings and bracelets. Native American jewelry artist Lena Platero's signature jewelry is featured in this section. Lena was born in 1954 in the Navajo Tribe and has become a self taught silversmith, Her name, "Platero" in fact means silversmith. Demand for Lena Platero's feather jewelry has been so overwhelming that you will now find other artists copying her signature jewelry.

In the Native American culture, feathers are a symbol of prayers, the source of ideas and when worn, a mark of honor. Eagle feathers particularly represent honor and a connection with the Creator.

It is difficult to pin point one particular meaning of feathers for the Native Americans as hundreds of tribes have evolved in their beliefs and rituals over hundreds of years.

Legend has it from the Hopi Indians that four turkey feathers were used in symbolic placements and rituals. The four turkey represented the wilderness of the earth and the four winds. Together the four feathers were symbolic that the Earth is a wilderness that no man can control.

More commonly, the higher-minded, wiser souls and noblemen of the Sioux Tribe wore 28 feathers in the headdress in crowning rituals. The 28 feathers were sacred in representing the 28 days of the Moon's cycle. The buffalo which is also sacred to the Sioux Tribe also has 28 ribs. Of common knowledge, the eagle is a sacred symbol and 12 eagle feathers were used in ceremonies honoring the 12 months of the year as well as the 12 symbolic rays of the Sun.

Today's modern feather jewelry is a testimony to the sacred meaning of the feathers in the in the American Indian culture. You will find each feather jewelry item authenticated by the Navajo jewelry artist's hallmark. Lena Platero actually spells out her name.
