About Buffalo Gypsies
Jewelry for the woman with an untamable soul
Buffalo Gypsies was founded by veteran jewelry designer Jona Bonecutter
"Buffalo Gypsies comes from my family story of 4 generations of Traders, Traders was a term used for folks like my family who
had Trading Post on and around Native American Reservations, and who traded goods and necessities to the Natives for their art.
My great grandmother began trading when her husband cheated and she took off to forge a solo life.
Loving the Native American art she saw, she filled up her Cadillac with as much as would fit, armed with a Bible and a German Luger
pistol by her side, she sold to shops along Route 66. When she opened her first Trading Post, she slept in the back and continued to travel
to remote reservations. My families trading post which came later was opened on Route 66 as well, they had Buffalo for trading and attracting tourist,
the words Buffalo Gypsies are a symbol of my great grandmothers life, moxy, courage, and savvy business ways, that she in turn passed down
through four generations of my wild, wonderful family who are still Traders today."
