American Indian Jewelry

The best known jewelry making Indian Nations in the Southwest of the USA, a region including Arizona, Neu-Mexico, Utah and Colorado are the Navajo, Zuni, Hopi and the Rio Grande Pueblos. For all these tribes jewelry is an important part of their cultural lives. Apart from its trading value and its reflection of personal wealth and status, jewelry plays also an important roll in the dramatic and colorful presentation during ceremonial dances. As signs for heaven and water, home of the sun and symbol for rain, turquoise and seashells are associated with growth and rebirth, which are essential spirits of many of those dances.
