Sterling Silver Turquoise Bracelets Made by Native American Artists from the Navajo Indian Tribe and the Zuni Indian Tribe.
Southwestern Indians have worn jewelry made from pieces of shell, turquoise and other materials for centuries. The jewelry we think of as "Indian" began to evolve about 100 years ago. The Navajo were the first to produce jewelry that required the working of metal. Their love of metal working can be traced to the Spanish arrival in the Southwest.
The major characteristic of Navajo jewelry today is the emphasis on metal work. The Navajo jewelry is designed to fit the stones. Stamp work, leaves and feathers fashioned of sterling silver are used to accent turquoise and other stones.
