Profile | TSOUL Jewelry

I came across this jewelry and accessories company on NDN Circle. The Navajo-owned company is TSOUL by KLT, and is dedicated to creating jewelry or wearable art focused on sustainability and uniqueness.

Some of their creations use common materials such as bolts and lace, and even recycled washers from various appliances, to create wearable appealing jewelry.

The necklaces are strung on either a string or ball chain with a recycled metal piece as the staple and beaded around in Japanese Miyuki beads in different tribal patterns.

The newest staple to the collection are their bangles, which come in all sorts of colors (bone, daffodil and cobalt) and patterns (Tribal & Navajo) and stones (spiny oyster, jasper and turquoise).

The designer is going to have a sample sale today, Saturday (7/31/10), at Earls Restaurant in Gallup, New Mexico.

Below are some examples of recently hand-made creations. The first is a necklace made with recycled copper piping with a Navajo water blanket design:
