If you ever break a piece of pottery, think twice before throwing it away.  Among the numerous artifacts found in North America, pottery shards have revealed a tremendous amount of clues regarding the people and cultures that created them. One particular group known as the Anasazi – translated as the “ancient ones” – were accomplished potters. Today, even the remnants of their pots have become valuable collectibles.

This week’s New Arrival features an Anasazi pottery shard that has been cleverly crafted into a wearable pendant. Created over a millennium ago this piece lets us know the Anasazi placed a premium on beauty as well as function. Their bold, geometric black and white designs have never really gone out of style. While this piece makes an up-to-the-minute fashion statement, it also confidently brings us to the intersection where ancient meets modern.
