VG. Silver and white boards, white & color illus. dust jacket, illus. flyleaves, 272 pp., many color illus. "Presents the story of Navajo jewelry seen through the lens of the Yazzies, a family of exceptionally gifted jewelers. From adornment worn by Ancestral Puebloan peoples more than two thousand years ago to pieces worn today by Native and non-Native aficionados, jewelry has been an important form of artistic expression in the American Southwest. Its diversity of design reflects a long history of migrations, trade, and cultural exchange. Pushing beyond silver, turquoise, and squash blossom necklaces, Southwestern jewelers--the Navajo in particular--have created a vital, contemporary aesthetic based on traditional materials and motifs. The availability and use of an increasingly wide variety of stones, metals, and techniques has generated an inventive body of work....Explores in full the origins, history, and development of Navajo jewelry as an equally important means of cultural expression."
