About NJS



Mission Statement


Our mission of the Native Jewelers Society (NJS) is to encourage artistic and innovative creations. Abiding by the Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990, NJS Jewelers maintain high quality work with integrity and honesty. NJS silversmiths are passionate to share their experiences and cultures. We are dedicated to improve educational opportunities through Workshops and Demonstrations, Presentations, Jewelry Shows, and Jewelry Fashion Shows.



Who is Native Jewelers Society?

Native Jewelers Society is a community of jewelers who will interact with one another and share information that will benefit everyone in the group. I envision the group helping the up-and-comers, the youth, the elders, and each other. I would like to see the group help our Native community as well, e.i. Workshops for youth and community, Toys for tots, food drives, fire wood for elders, etc . The group will interact with supporters of the Native Jewelry world, e.i., galleries, collectors, stone dealers, authors and other publications, museums, and many others. The group members will also showcase their works of art on the NJS website. It's gonna be a family thing. Many will not join but that is okay, because we all have something in common with Native Jewelers Society and that is unity.

 

Native Jewelers Society promotes the The Indian Arts and Crafts Act of 1990 (P.L. 101-644) is a truth-in-advertising law that prohibits misrepresentation in marketing of Indian arts and crafts products within the United States. If you purchase an art or craft product represented to you as Indian-made, and you learn that it is not, first contact the dealer to request a refund. If the dealer does not respond to your request, you can also contact your local Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, and the local District Attorney's office, as you would with any consumer fraud complaint. Second, contact the Indian Arts and Crafts Board with your written complaint regarding violations of the Act.
