Cara Glass Cuff
Dark Skies Collection
Inspired by the wonder of the dark sky at night during a storm, the bracelets in the Dark Skies Collection are truly striking in appearance. Dark black and gray beads contrast sharply with silver and gold beads in patterns that evoke the humbling, starry expanse of space and the power of a sudden lightning storm.
The perfect accent for special occasions or a statement for every day, the handcrafted Dark Skies Collection provides inspiration and a sense of awe for the vastness of our world.
How We Got Started
The word Etkie translates to mean “impact” in Turkish. In 2013, Sydney worked with a women’s cooperative in Istanbul assisting artisans in creating a platform for their handmade jewelry. The intent was to elevate their profit from meager sales to a reliable living wage. Returning to New Mexico, she launched ETKIE with the same passion to create an ethical company that could provide Native American beaders with a platform to create contemporary designs using the artistic traditions passed down from generations.
Ethically Made with Love
The team of artists earn living wages, impacting the choices they can make for themselves and their families. The artists live on the Navajo Nation where the roads to work are long and the jobs are nonexistent. Many of them elect to work from home on the land and in the community where their roots are deeply planted.
Handcrafted with our heart and soul, with no two pieces exactly the same, we hope you enjoy wearing your ETKIE piece.
