Since the beginning of Jessie Western, Jessica and Vicky's sole aim is to have jewellery, bags, boots and clothes that are completely handmade and one off. All the artists Jessie Western work with create from their heart and are not being forced to mass produce.
Jessie Western's world is all about objects with a purpose: turquoise jewellery made by Native American artists and fine gem jewellery by Jessie Western.All Jessie Western pieces have been thoughtfully selected; the free minded person enjoys this intentional work and the meaning behind each piece of handmade jewellery, carving and bead work. The ethical foundation of Jessie Western products is something we are proud of and a love for art and nature has always been with us and we continue to enjoy sharing it with others.
Be aware who makes your jewellery and caring about the very source of where it comes from

Caring about the Native American Indian artists and trying to protect them against people copying their designs is very hard.
Jessie Western have helped some Native American Indian artists copyright their designs. There is a huge surge of copied Native American Indian jewellery today in the High Street shops around the UK and markets and even now on our own Portobello Road market we see FAKE copies made in the Philippines, China or Mexico, including the much loved dream catcher.
