Description: Adornment -- jewelry, beadwork, and ceremonial regalia -- is a defining element of cultural expression for Native North Americans. This stunning new book from the author of Abrams' classic The History of Beads presents the first comprehensive study of American Indian adornment -- a sweeping panorama extending from the Arctic Circle to northern Mexico and from the Atlantic to the Pacific Oceans.

Lois Sherr Dubin spent the last decade researching, photographing artifacts, and conducting interviews with elders and artists, excerpts of which are printed here. Thousands of beautiful and distinctive objects are reproduced -- more than 800 in magnificent color -- many for the first time. Included are Southwestern turquoise jewelry, Plains beadwork, "carved" metal bracelets from the Northwest, quill- and moosehair work from the Subarctic, etched horn jewelry from northern California, and engraved mussel-shell gorgets from Oklahoma and the Southeast.

This richly informative book, which includes regional maps, diagrams of jewelry techniques, and three sumptuous gatefolds, is destined to be a standard reference in the fields of jewelry, Native American culture, and oral history.
