Book Description:
The introduction of this book provides a brief history of the Southwest identifying the relevant tribes. The first chapter encompasses prehistoric beads, pendants and mosaics, as well as contemporary bead and mosaic work by the Santo Domingo Pueblo and carved jewelry by the Zuni. Chapter two focuses on the most familiar aspect of Indian jewlry: squash-blossom necklaces, concha belts, silver buckles etc. The 100-year history of Navajo, Hopi and Zuni silver work is recounted, and examples of new vqriations on traditional forms are explored. Chapter three begins with the inventive art of Charles Loloma, a Hopi artist who was the first to transform traditional jewelry by using unusual stones, exotic woods, gold, and semiprecious gems. His vivid work has inspired succeeding generations of artists, whose innovative creations are presented here. The final chapter is devoted to enabling collectors to collect wisely, and its features an extensive illustrated glossary of materials, techniques, objects and designs. There is also a directory of sources of Southwestern Indian jewelry.
