Southwest Indian Jewelry: Bracelets
+Add category to My Preferences
Southwestern Indians have been using shell and stone to make jewelry since prehistoric times. After the arrival of the Spanish, they added silver to the materials they used. Fine examples of older jewelry are available at the gallery, including necklaces made of shell and stone from Kewa (Santo Domingo Pueblo), Zuni turquoise cluster work and Navajo silver cuffs and earrings. Most of the jewelry dates from the time period just after the Second World War.
Authentic, hand-crafted Native American bracelets rank among the most popular Native jewelry forms. We carry simple cuffs, elaborate cluster bracelets, and everything in between.
