INDIAN JEWELRY OF THE AMERICAN SOUTHWEST

by William A. Turnbaugh & Sarah Peabody Turnbaugh
review by Sandra Todaro

xA photo of the book cover from William Turnbaugh's and Sarah Peabody Turnbaugh's "Indian Jewelry of the American Southwest".

For those developing an interest in Native American Jewelry, this is a good volume with which to start your reference library. 

Touching on the ancient history of Indian jewelry, it includes the Spanish contribution to the art, the creation process, care and maintenance, you name it.

  Brief histories are also given of the various tribes and the distinctive styles each produce. All in all, a worthwhile volume.
