Some of my Trade Silver on my shirt and wrap skirt. All of my Trade Silver is made from 20 or 22 gauge sheet sterling silver. Hand cut, hand stamped and slightly domed by hand. My pieces are pretty chunkie, not like the old style Trade Silver which is pretty thin. I do make some 'reproduction' designs, but I like to come up with my own designs mostly. Kinda giving 'new life' to an old style of artwork that not many people do anymore.

Here is another piece of Trade Silver that I created. This is a custom piece that I made for myself to incorporate into my regalia. I like to put the double curve symbols on just about everything, you'll notice as I start adding more photos. The double curve symbols are specific to the NorthEast. This brooch is about 2 inches and I wear it on my wool wrap skirt which I will have pictures of at a later date. Anyone interested in some trade silver can contact me through this blog or one of my websites. Web addresses are located on an earlier post.
