From turquoise-accented squash-blossom necklaces to earrings of thin coral heishi beads, to multistranded bone chokers, Native American jewelry has long been recognized for its meticulous construction and often resplendently ornate characteristics. While examples of traditional styles still dominate many indigenous art markets and exhibitions, there’s plenty of room for fresh takes on old techniques. Margaret Jacobs’ modern jewelry stands in appealing contrast to more established Native styles.
