The most prolific 20th century and contemporary Zuni jewelers established themselves by adhering to the same basic models and traditions set by their parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. Using silver and mosaic inlay pins, bracelets, bolo ties and other ornaments, these artisans have created many successful motifs taken from the animal kingdom, including horses and cows, insects such as butterflies and dragonflies, wild animals like deer and antelope, birds of all shapes and sizes, and humans. All of these are featured in the author's fourth book in his series on Zuni jewelry. Read sixty-five biographies of Zuni jewelry-making individuals and families, with interesting facts about their extraordinary backgrounds and explanations of their design styles and methods. Nearly 300 color photos display subtle variations that indicate a particular master's work. Detailed notes on each image include design specifics and prices.
