Wild Spirits trend story celebrates artisanal crafts and handmade techniques. The spirited multi-cultural palette, primitive decoration and crude execution evoke the elaborate nature of the trend. Texture becomes one of the most important qualities, photographs of horses transferred onto vintage fabric, vintage alpaca hair, fine leather and artisanal accents like fringing and embroidery create a luxurious look and feel. Pieced and patched fabrics and raw reference crafts from Mexico and South America – Serape, Native American influences – Navajo and Chimayo textiles influence decoration and print. The key items in Wild Spirits are accent pillows, bags and clutches.

Hand Crafted Rosaries made from cruelty free horse hair by artisans in Peru. Bracelets crafted by the Huichol Indian tribes of Mexico by skilled artists who learned and inherited craftsmanship from generations. The colors and symbols of the beadings represent the Huichol culture – many of the designs represent important symbols for the Huichol Indians, such as good luck, rain, sun, fire, fertility, wisdom, and knowledge. Native American influences include Native American Indian Turquoise Jewelry and Native tribe necklaces. Materials in Native Nomad include: Arizona turquoise, agate, flourite, garnet, rubies, beadwork.

Legend has it that the Native American Indians danced and rejoiced when the rains came. Their tears of joy mixed with the rain and seeped into Mother Earth to become SkyStone Turquoise.

Turquoise, the “fallen sky stone” hidden in Mother Earth, has been valued by cultures for its beauty and reputed spiritual and life-giving qualities for over 7000 years. It is a true gem of the centuries. A long time ago someone noticed a clear blue line running through gray rock, and saw the imagery of sky and water in stone, and from that time on, turquoise has been cherished above all else in creation – turquoise, stone of sky, stone of water, stone of blessings, good fortune, protection, good health and long life.
