Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0887402267, Paperback)

This splendidly illustrated volume celebrates the historic silver and turquoise jewelry of the Nvavjo and Pueblo Indians. A classic, it presents over 300 superb objects that are usually hidden from view in museum storerooms and private collections across the United States. Larry Frank discusses the history of this jewelry from 1868, when the Navajos were restored to their homeland, to 1930, when tourist demand and mass production ended the innovative first phase of the craft. Indian Silver Jewelry contains 253 close-up photographs, 52 of them in color, of conchas, necklaces, bracelets, rings, hair ornaments, bridles, and other pieces as well as rare photographs of Indians wearing jewelry. The detailed captions invite the readers to look, compare, and discover for themselves the extraordinary beauty and vitality of Southwest Indian silver jewelry.
