This newly revised 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 been developing jewelry forms for more than 125 years. 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. 90 brilliant color photographs present hundreds of carefully chosen jewelry forms with a brand new price guide to tempt and delight collectors all over Europe and America. The modern artists are identified and credited with the skillful techniques that produce such exquisite jewelry.
