One-of-a-kind thimbles are a fun thing to collect - whether you sew or not. 

Turquoise & Tufa has 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.

How special to think that same thimble that protected the fingers of one of the greatest patrons of Native American art can now adorn your own finger tips.

This sweet, petite thimble is a vintage Navajo handmade silver piece. It has pretty stamping and most notably a lovely scalloped border at the base. It's 3/4" tall with a 9/16" diameter at the base.
