Contemporary Native American Jewelry

Contemporary Native American jewelry exploded during the Southwestern jewelry heyday of the 1970s. During this time, American Indian jewelry was fashionable and worn by celebrities and the best Native American jewelry makers were inspired to elevate their craft to dazzling heights. Today’s contemporary Native American jewelry combines technical excellence and elegant aesthetics - popular forms include Navajo silverwork, Zuni stone- work and channel inlay, Hopi silver overlay, and Santo Domingo shell beadwork and inlay. We feature works by important American Indian jewelers including Charles Loloma, Kenneth Begay, and Preston Monongye.
