Description
The fascinating evolution of jewelry designs by Indian artist of the American Southwest is documented in this exciting new book. Over 100 years of changing economic and cultural influences have been decisive for the designs of this jewelry. Some Traditional-style jewelry continues to be made today as it has been for centuries, while other forms date themselves to narrow ranges when certain materials, techniques, markets, and popularity influenced their designs. The concise yet highly informative text is joined with over 450 captioned, glorious color photographs of this exciting jewelry. From silver, shell, and turquoise to gold, diamonds and other exotic materials, the revolution in Southwest Indian jewelry is visually captured here. Belts, buckles, bracelets, necklaces, men's jewelry, earrings, and pins are chronologically arranged, and the jewelers of most pieces are identified with their tribal affiliations. Galleries, dealers, collectors, and other artists will appreciate this study of stunning designs.
