Southwestern Indian Jewelry opens by surveying the vividly colored necklaces, earrings, and pins made in shell and stone from prehistoric times to the present, particularly in the Santo Domingo and Zuni pueblos. The focus then shifts to the much-admired and avidly collected work in silver by Navajo, Hopi, and Zuni artists. The book culminates in an exploration of striking contemporary work, in which many artists have adapted traditional approaches to create original designs.
