One of the prime beneficiaries of this influx was the Bell Trading Post Company (sometimes known as, Bell Copper) that was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1935 by Jack Michelson and his wife Mildred. The Bell Company got its name from Jacks wife, whose maiden name was Bell. The majority of this jewelry was made from sterling silver, turquoise and, copper.
In fact, copper was often used in place of silver. Bell Trading Post produced these tourist intended pieces. Most were made from sterling silver, turquoise and copper. The hallmarks typically included the image of a bell or that of an arrow sign post with a bell sign hanging from it. From the 1930s to the 1960s, Bell Trading Post hired hundreds of Native American silversmiths to create jewelry intended for sale in shops across the Southwest.
