About

RaeLynne and Gil Toperoff have been passionate about Indian jewelry since they first traveled the Southwestern United States in 1978. They went to pueblos and reservations in Arizona and New Mexico and saw the unique handcrafted jewelry made by the talented hands of the artists who lived there. In many cases they went a step further and met the artists and learned about their cultures, lives, and personal stories. It was their dream to make this wonderful art form available to a broader audience. They started buying hand-picked pieces and bringing them to art shows and craft shows in the Chicago area and in California. They are now permanently based in Southern California and are regular vendors at several shows in the region. For more information about where to see the jewelry in person please view the calendar.
