Today there is a vibrant community of Native American jewelers creating contemporary styles that challenge traditional forms, techniques, and materials. Some artists experimented by working in gold, or using gemstones like opals and diamonds that were not typically used in Native American jewelry. Others presented Native American symbols and icons in modern, stylized ways.
Though artists began experimenting in the 1950s and 1960s, it was not until the 1970s that these innovative styles were embraced by the market. Since then, contemporary styles have flourished, bringing Native American jewelry to an international audience. By pushing boundaries, contemporary artists have truly elevated the technical expertise and sophistication of Native American jewelry, bringing it to level of couture fashion and fine art.Read our Native American Jewelry Collector’s Guide.
