Southwestern Indian Bracelets: The Essential Cuff

This design history of Southwestern Indian bracelets examines their start in 1868 up through 1970, and the post-1980 legacy that honors those first 100 years. More than 360 color photos illustrate the history. The book begins by examining sources for designs and how styles came into being, followed by a look at historic, vintage, curio, and post-1980 bracelets that reflect the new Native Style. Learn how Native Americans have always made essential contributions to design by tracking ongoing craft innovation and social change, and how popular culture impacts the individual artists who create this jewelry form. Whether featured on eBay, sold on QVC’s home shopping channel, or seen in the pages of O, The Oprah Magazine, old and new Southwestern Indian cuff bracelets are an integral part of today’s finest jewelry-making.

A good book to begin learning about Native American silverwork. wonderful pictures of older and newer style bracelets. Informative and written witha concept for teaching about time periods and overall effect of tourism on jewelry styles. I would recommend it as part of a library of information tohelp understand and identify Southwestern Indian bracelets.

This book is a disappointment. The photography isn't first rate and the color saturation is weak. It was printed in China on very glossy paper with a plastic texture. The books by Lois Sherr Dubin and Dexter Cirillo have far better jewelry, photography, and print quality. I was also puzzled by the examples of jewelry shown in the book. I've been collecting Native American jewelry since the 70's and wonder why Ms. Baxter didn't show more beautiful examples? Among the modern pieces - I've seen better and more interesting jewelry on the Chaco Dog website, with a few exceptions. This book is very informative if you want to read about the history of Native American cuffs. If you are looking for great photography and jewelry to dazzle you - stick to the Dubin and Cirillo books.

An excellent book with terrific photographs tightly focused on one area of Native American silver craft.

An excellent book with outstanding pictures and text. The best of Paula Baxter's books yet!

i would highly recommend this book for anyone remotely interested in southwestern jewelry. extremely extensive with great pictures.

Paula Baxter and her wonderful husband do a really great job on every book they publish! I love old pawn!
