A letter from John

Dear Friends,

The jewelry pieces and hand-braided leather goods featured in the Mountain Angels Trading Co collection represent the best of the past twenty-nine years of my silversmithing and leather braiding.  Since my favorite work is the fashioning of western bola ties, I often describe myself as a "bolosmith."  I am also a boatman, campfire musician, Permaculture Design certified gardener, environmental activist, beekeeper, student of life, and grateful father of 2 young men sons.

Archetypal forms, pictographs, symbolic icons, personal experiences, and totem images found along the "Shiny Trail" influence many of the jewelry designs, amulets, and bolos which I create.  When making jewelry, one of my main goals is to infuse Chi, or life force, into each piece I make.  Most of my jewelry products include a written text of information, which help to interpret the significance of a petroglyph, shape, symbol or spiritual icon.  I hope that you find my jewelry designs attractive, personally meaningful, and empowering...

I appreciate each and every order and strive to provide the best customer service possible. I guarantee that you will be satisfied with the quality of every product purchased from Mountain Angels Trading Company. If not, you may return it within 15 days from the purchase date for a full refund or credit on replacement.
