We've passed by Lantern Dancer many times driving through Pagosa. On this trip we had extra time so we finally went in. They have beautiful jewelry and are very friendly, informative, and helpful! Even though there were many interesting pieces, we ended up making a small purchase with a pair of dragonfly earrings. I will definitely be back next time we're in town!

My husband and I visited Pagosa Springs several years ago and we were fortunate enough to meet the owner who was just returning from lunch. She showed us all around the gallery and I purchased a few beautiful pieces. After that, I stayed in contact on the internet and purchased other items, all beautiful hand crafted and reasonably priced. When new owners took over, the store retained its quality and beautiful stock. I highly recommend this shop whether online or in person. I have become familiar with some of their artists and just love their work. I hope to visit the shop again soon, but until then, I will continue purchase on line...top notch quality!

Love this store for Native Jewelry. Even if you can’t get to the store you can order online. I “shop” often online and love their variety. I have bought in store and online and would do more if I had more birthdays.
I would need a second job if I lived close to Pegosa Springs.
The staff is wonderful. It’s easy to find on Hey 50 and the plenty of parking but not for an RV.

For my last birthday my husband bought me the most beautiful phoenix cuff from lantern dancer. Obviously I picked it out but still! It’s perfect! Also got a pair of brown beaded earrings with turquoise. They are lightweight and I love how the website shows the sizes. It was very easy to buy online and I’m so happy with both pieces. Also, I get a lot of compliments and send those people to their Instagram page. Will be buying more turquoise pieces in the future from lantern dancer.
