Shannon Green Collection opened in the fall of 2012.  The Naples, Florida boutique represents a global collection of fine jewelry, showcasing statement pieces in 18 to 22K gold, sterling silver, precious and semi-precious stones.  The collection is inspired by a diverse array of designers, cultures, people, nature and life itself! 

“Some time ago, I fell in love with the salty air of the sundrenched Gulf Coast, embracing a beautiful life in Naples, living consciously and enjoying every moment... 

My journey began as a child captivated by the beauty of unique objects, with a special love of jewelry. This passion took me across the world for over a decade, working alongside top designers of luxury goods as an accessories buyer and designer, experiencing life in fabulous cities, such as London and New York.”

An eclectic personal style has developed over time into a jewelry collection with a luxe bohemian spirit.  Treasure hunting on my travels is both exciting and inspiring and I am dedicated to sourcing beautifully crafted, one-of-a-kind artisanal pieces.”

The collection fuses styles... Bohemian to elegant, ethnic to rock and roll permeates the boutique and creativity is embraced.

“Jewelry is meant to be worn and enjoyed. Each piece represents a deeply personal expression of oneself that is connected to our being. Every day I enjoy being immersed amongst my collection, spending spare time enjoying sandy toes, balmy nights and the holiday vibe with my tribe.

Embrace Life...”

What is a “Fetish Bead”?

The main source for academic information on Zuni fetishes is the Second Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology submitted in 1881 by Frank Hamilton Cushing and posthumously published as Zuni Fetishes in 1966, with several later reprints. Cushingreports that the Zuni divided the world into six regions or directions: north, west, south, east, above, and below. At the center of each region is a great mountain peak that is a very sacred place. Yellow mountain to the north, blue mountain to the west, red mountain to the south, white mountain to the east, the multi-colored mountain above, and the black mountain below.

Each direction is represented by a Prey God, or guardian animal, and are listed by Cushing as follows:

north — the yellow mountain lion,

west — the black bear (represented by the color blue),

south — the red badger,

east — the white wolf,

above or the sky — the multi-colored eagle,

below or underground — the black mole.

Each prey god is the “guardian and master” of their region, with the yellow mountain lion being the elder brother of all animals and the master and guardian of all regions. Each one of these regions contains an order of all the guardian animals, but the "guardian and master" of a particular region is the elder brother to all animals of that region. These guardians are considered as having protective and healing powers. They are held by the priests of the medicine orders as if "in captivity" and act as mediators between the priests and the animals they represent.
