Mac’s Indian Jewelry has stood the test of time
Mac and Karen McPherson of Mac'sIndian Jewelry began selling authentic Native American jewelry from a table at the Tanque Verde Swap Meet in the mid 1970’s. Now, nearly 50 years later, their son Shane and his wife Danielle are continuing the family legacy, searching out unique, Native American pieces from Zuni, Navajo, Hopi, Tohono O’odham and Santa Domingo artists from Arizona and New Mexico—often buying from the descendants of artists Shane’s parents traveled the Southwest to find.
From traditional Navajo Squash Blossom necklaces, to modern, contemporary designs, Mac’s has a wide variety of jewelry and accessories in an even wider variety of designs, colors, and prices, with something to fit every budget and style.
Today, customers can browse their well-organized showroom where timeless, hand-crafted pieces are organized by stone color and style, making browsing a breeze so you can easily find the perfect ring, bracelet or necklace to go with your favorite pair of earrings.
From $12 stud earrings and $20 silver heart necklaces, to a 14k gold inlaid turquoise, lapis and coral Navajo bracelet with a half carat diamond, for $9,000—and everything in between—there truly is something for every style and budget at Mac’s.
You’ll find unique items like traditional silver baby bracelets, rattles, and spoons, along with envelope openers, fine silver Concho belts, silver and turquoise barrettes, bear paw hair combs, and silver, copper, and beaded earrings.
