EXPLORE BRACELETS HAND-BEADED BY NAJAVO ARTISANS
Our Etkie bracelets are crafted by artists who live on the Navajo Nation, and many of them elect to work from home on the land and in the communities where their roots are deeply planted. The Navajo have a long tradition of herding livestock, and with gratitude for and affirmation of their profound reverence for the natural world, we're thrilled to bring this collaboration to the Ranchlands Mercantile store.SHOP NOW

“The artisans work from home and create their own schedules according to their family and community needs,” she says. What results are beautiful beaded bracelets that are equally traditional and modern. “Our artisans believe that when something is handcrafted, a piece of their spirit is infused in each piece,” Alfonso says. “With each stitch, you can tell it has been made with love.”
"Three Young Labels Making Old Methods New Again"
"Stocked in high-end boutiques like Colette in Paris and Alchemy Works in Los Angeles, each Etkie piece, priced between $168 and $595, can take up to eight hours to make. With an estimated 30 percent of American Indians identifying as practicing artists (and one in four living below the poverty line), Etkie is the first jewelry brand to bring their specialized skills to the mass market."
