Celebrates the silver jewelry of the Navaho and Pueblo indians presenting over 300 objects usually hidden in museum storerooms. 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. Explores the early design sources in Spanish, Mexican and Plains Indian work, traces the cultural development from pastime to esteemed profession, and notes the Pueblo indians contribution-the sophisticated use of turquoise.

About the Author:

Larry Frank studied medieval art in Paris. Upon returning to the United States, he found that the counterpart that continued the tradition for him was the linear and stylized design of the santos. He was a collector of santos for thirty-five years and was considered a leading authority on the subject.
