One-of-a-kind thimbles are a fun thing to collect even if you're not a seamstress.

Turquoise & Tufa just received a tiny collection of handmade Native American thimbles. They originally belonged to Martha Hopkins Struever, the well-known Native American art dealer and scholar. Marti Struever wrote two gorgeous art books on Charles Loloma and Dextra Quotskuyva. Marti also enjoyed sewing and needlepoint, so she had a large collection of antique and vintage thimbles. There were just a few Native American made ones in her collection. This is one of hers.

It's a vintage Navajo thimble handmade of sterling silver with a simple pattern of stamp work. This pretty thimble measures 15/16" tall with a 3/4" diameter opening for the finger. Stamped "sterling"
