An intimate glimpse into the lives of American Indian jewelers. In interviews with more than 50 working jewelers, and featuring photographs of their exquisite work, Mark Bahti shows how American Indian jewelers blend tradition with innovation and art with craft. Among American artists, Native American jewelers are unsurpassed. These portraits also reveal the person--or family--who created these stunning bracelets, rings, necklaces, and other expressions of art in precious metals and gems. Lavishly illustrated in full color.
