The Spanish introduced silver and copper metals. These became highly prized materials in Native communities. Artists fashioned them to become personal adornments along with the use of turquoise, shells, corals, and other semi-precious stones. Turquoise has always been used as a symbol of beauty, positive energy, strength, and carries many historical attributes. Some believe turquoise is a piece of sky, a symbol of water, a gift from the spirits that are used to adorn and pay reverence.
