Beads were made in the prehistoric American Southwest by the ancestors of the Pueblo Indians, and survived into the historic era. Bead jewelry creations in shell. stone, and silver are important in the Native American jewelry market.
This book by author Paula A. Baxter revisits some leading misconceptions about Pueblo jewelry-making in the exsiting literature. A survey of modern Pueblo jewelry innovation confirms that its design is unique, and discusses how Pueblo design is meshed with American mid-century modernist expression. It also features today's Pueblo jewlers and showcases the invention and orginality that the culture continues to offer.
