American West Jewelry by Carolyn Pollack inspired Heritage
What is New Mexico known for?
New Mexico proudly—and rightfully—claims the oldest recorded history in what is now the United States. Native Americans flourished here for centuries before the arrival of Hispanic explorers and, much later, Western settlers. All early settlers have contributed from their cultures—women and men equally—to create the hearty blend New Mexico now offers. It is the courageous Cowgirl that American West Jewelry honors through our collections. 🐎
Cowgirls of the American Southwest
The unique traditions and stunning landscapes of New Mexico have long attracted women of an adventuresome heart. Some are well known—while most remain unsung heroines. We recognize artist: Georgia O’Keeffe, patron of the arts: Mabel Dodge Luhan and Standard Oil Heiress style icon: Millicent Rogers, we celebrate her style here with Turquoise Bracelets. New Mexico history is told in many Santa Fe Museums, including Georgia O’Keeffe’s, near the historic Plaza in Santa Fe. 🪶
All were possessed of a pioneering nature that drew them to the blue skies and sweeping vistas of the high desert. It is this spirit of quest and adventure that informs and inspires the design of American West Jewelry.
We celebrate that glorious gift of individuality in every piece of jewelry. Drawing on the diversity of our multicultural heritage. We design artifacts that reflect our close connection to Mother Earth and the Southwest. Jewelry that respects and honors the spark of the free-spirited, emboldened women who wear it. We imagine jewelry as art— a long way of life here. 🦅
