Stanton Lance is a Laguna-Yaqui artist and craftsman who has more than 30 years' experience making beautiful wood inlay jewelry and boxes.

Many Native American artists working today are inspired by the interplay between traditional and contemporary styles. In their work they feel it is important to honor their history, heritage, and culture, including the art forms and techniques passed down through generations of Pueblo families. By mixing and matching techniques, materials, and themes that are contemporary and traditional, they create inspiring work that has made the modern Native American art world extremely vibrant.
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.
