Necklace, Brecken Geiman, Leather Thong, Multi Stone, Protector Owl, Custom for Double D Ranch, Hallmark, Contemporary, 1897

Size Guide


Artist Brecken Geiman created this beauty custom for Double D Ranch as part of a creative collaboration to complement the Desert Desperados Spring 2023 collection. The detailed depiction of the owl crafted in sterling silver is a nod to “Protector Owl”, one of the characters from the collection and a significant spiritual influence in the Geiman family. The owl pendant is adorned with bold cabochons of orange spiny oyster and bumblebee jasper, and is suspended from a leather thong strap. As an added bonus, the pendant is inscribed with “PLAY NICE, BE FREE”. 

A native to the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, Brecken has spent most of her life exploring the meadows, creeks, and Blue Ridge Mountains collecting “creative data.” In her passion for spending time with Mother Nature and love of travel, her artistic inspiration extends beyond rural Virginia, spanning from desert landscapes to coastal dunes.

Through the use of precious metal clay, fine silver, brass, polymer clay, gemstones, reclaimed leather, and other unique materials, she strives to create artwork that showcases her connection to the natural world as well as iconic Americana motifs. As a mixed-media artist and designer, she uses variable approaches and techniques in her jewelry making.

 Brecken considers herself a combination of a naturalist, explorer, creative forager, and artist. In her design, each piece goes through many intricate stages of evolution which may take several days or even weeks to finalize from kiln-firing, silversmithing, hand-sculpting, sewing, cold-working, and etching. Her artistic process is multi-faceted, and in the end, she is able to present truly one-of-a-kind wearable works of art.

  • Many of the jewelry items we sell are antique, vintage, and/or pre-owned. We acquire these pieces from dealers in New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada, who work exclusively with Native American jewelry and art. That means they had a life before we found them, and they may show evidence of that previous life; signs of wear, dents, scratches, oxidation, broken stones, etc. We strive to be accurate and transparent in our descriptions of these pieces.

  • Jewelry items are not photographed to scale. We’re not trying to be tricky, our clothing items aren’t photographed to scale either (imagine how large that catalog would be!). Please check the description for the item’s dimensions and feel free to email us with any questions.

  • We are not gemologists. We choose pieces based on their overall aesthetic and how well they accessorize the Double D Ranch collection. Due to the high quality of laboratory-made stones and the influx of fake “Native American” jewelry from the Middle East, we rely heavily on our vetted suppliers to maintain a level of confidence in the quality of stones, provenance, and authenticity of each piece. We try our best to accurately describe the stones in our jewelry items but cannot absolutely guarantee them.

  • We celebrate aging. In ourselves, and in our jewelry. We want the true age of the piece to be represented, so we do not perform any type of cleaning or polishing. If the item is oxidized when we acquire it, that is precisely how you will receive it.
