Dawn Glass Cuff
Inspired by the quiet, starry stillness of long winter nights, the Black Tourmaline Collection celebrates the beauty of our planet in rest. Like the stone itself, this restorative collection represents the power we gain from going deep within ourselves as we prepare to reawaken in the light. We hope wearing these pieces serve as a reminder of the quiet strength within you.
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.
