This new book presents the beautiful jewelry of the prolific Zuni Indians of New Mexico who are known the world over for their distinctive designs. From stone, shell, inlay, and silver, Zuni craftsmen have developed jewelry forms begun a hundred and twenty-five years ago. Contemporary makers both reflect the traditional designs and explore new styles, all shown here with many examples.
The lovely inlay work for which the Zuni are world famous is shown in all of its popular forms for men and women. Eighty-eight brilliant color photographs present hundreds of carefully chosen jewelry forms to tempt and delight collectors. The modern artists are identified and credited with the skillful techniques which produce such exquisite jewelry.
