About this product
- DescriptionThis beautiful book examines the first century of Navajo and Pueblo metal jewelry-making in the American Southwest. Beginning in the late 1860s, the region's native peoples learned metalworking and became accomplished silversmiths. Their work was united with a long-standing native traditon of beads and ornaments made from turquoise and other natural materials. The cross-cultural appeal of this jewelry continued into the mid-1900s, despite competition from tourist jewelry and mass-produced imitations. By the 1950s and 1960s, masters such as invators Kenneth Begay and Charles Loloma created a legacy of fine art jewelry that is prized today. This development is discussed in the context of social changes and adaptations over the century. A values reference guide is also provided.
- Author BiographyPaula Baxter, author of the first published Encyclopedia of Native American Jewelry, also wrote Southwest Silver Jewelry and Southwestern Indian Rings. A former art librarian and curator, she now teaches college in the New York metro area.
