for me, native american culture has always been one of the most interesting. since i was little i have been fascinated with their traditions and with their respect for nature so i guess it was a natural progression for me to start wearing native american jewelry and turquoise. these are a few of my favorite pieces that i own – the earrings belong to my roommate since i unfortunately do not have my ears pierced.
this chief ring i literally never take off… only to do yoga! one of my oldest friends gave it to me and i’m extremely protective of it!
one of my favorite native american quotes comes from the iroquois tribe and could not be more relevant to our current climate issues: “every action one takes, one must consider the effect on the next seven generations.”
note from kate: “great pics Smiley! i love the quote and i love native american jewelry annnd i love your chief ring, i always admire it whenever i see you. annnd you don’t have your ears pierced?! interesting! any desire to get them done? at the mall? Claire’s? – blooog poooost!!!”
