This is the "About Us" Page

The Hottest American Indian Jewelry Site On The Web  (In Our Humble Opinion).

You Can Buy Now or Use our Interest-free Lay-away Plan

Our "NO QUIBBLE GUARANTEE" protects you.  No hassles, guilt trips, silly questionnaires, and absolutely no BS!  If you do not like any merchandise purchased from us, for any reason,  return it, undamaged,  within 20 days, for a full refund of your purchase price.  (this is a refund, not a "Store Credit")  NO QUESTIONS ASKED - YOU ARE THE FINAL JUDGE.  No, you don't need to call us and ask for permission.  Just send it back.  No hassle! 

We could charge twice the price for this quality turquoise jewelry, but we'll let our 'competitors' do that. (With their misleading "50% off "claims)

Ugly Otter and his Beautiful Wife
The Ugly Otter (and his Beautiful Wife) the "Arizona and New Mexico Crew"

OUR HISTORY

The Ugly Otter lives with my Beautiful Wife in the Casas Adobes area of Tucson, Arizona.  We have studied and collected Indian Art, Sterling Silver Jewelry, and Jewelry Making for a good portion of our life.  We are "retired" from our previous employment, and are doing this Web Site to keep us busy, have a purposeful routine in life, and we enjoy the great customers we have.  (There may be one or two that we don't enjoy as much as the others, but, oh well)  And, the extra income provides some incentive, we must admit.

We have specialized in, and traded in,  sterling silver jewelry for many years. We do not claim to be experts in this or any other field, but this is where our interests have been for a long time.

The Otters travel extensively collecting the things shown on these web pages.  We frequent the Navajo, Zuni, and Santo Domingo Reservations about once each month, depending on need.  We also visit other Reservations frequently, and know some of the artists who make these items, and many of the things shown on these pages are purchased directly from those makers.

We haunt Pawn Shops in Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Utah, Nevada, Colorado, and anywhere else we happen to be.  We continue to hunt quality Old Pawn items for our web site.  This requires a lot of travel, palaver, and a great deal of plain 'ol "horse trading".  It's fun, but time consuming.  And considering today's gasoline prices, expensive!


Cathy and Daniel
Cathy and Dan, the "Elko, Nevada Crew"

In July, 2007, we decided to diversify our work load, so we turned the order-taking, shipping, and web page up-dating over to our daughter (Cathy) and son-in-law (Dan) who live in Elko, NV.  They are younger (naturally), more energetic, and eager to help the web site grow and prosper.  The Ugly Otter (and his Beautiful Wife) continue to buy the jewelry, and scout for more old pawn items which you see on this web site.  This keeps all four of us busy, and, hopefully, improves the Ugly Otter Web Site with a wider choice of items.  Also, the Ugly Otter has become somewhat lazy and does not want to work as hard as he did once upon a time.


Audrey
Audrey, the "California Connection"

Then, in February, 2011, one of the Otter's Granddaughters, Audrey, signed on to manage our "Facebook" presence.  You know how it is - the elder Otters do not fully understand the workings of all these new-fangled communication websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc.  So, the smart thing to do is get a bright youngster with agile thumbs, fingers, and mind, to do this for us!  These youngins can Tweet, Text, and walk at the same time.  We can't!

"Native American Jewelry, Turquoise Jewelry"

We are suppliers of some of the finest, least expensive, Native American Jewelry and Turquoise Jewelry to be found. We have decades of experience in scouting for fine Sterling Silver Southwestern Indian Jewelry and we offer it to you with pride. Our prices are very low considering these products are high quality - when we say  something is "Sterling Silver", "Real Turquoise",  or "Native American Made", that's exactly what we mean!! And, everything is priced, here, now, for you to compare!

Buying jewelry from individuals.
 Appraising Indian Jewelry

 
We don't buy from individuals who may have inherited or otherwise obtained Native American Jewelry unless we can actually see the jewelry.  We won't buy from photos.   
 We buy only from known and trusted Indian sources, or reputable Indian Traders who we've dealt with for years, unless we can actually see the jewelry in person.  There is a lot of "Indian Jewelry" made in third world countries, and we have to be careful.  Sorry!  We do buy from individuals under the right conditions.
