Adornment in the West: Turquoise & Silver

American Indians have been producing and wearing jewelry for thousands of years, and have worked as silversmiths for more than a century. From around the world, experts and connoisseurs alike recognize the jewelry, beadwork, quillwork, and silver pieces as a distinctly American art form. "Adornment in the West: The American Indian as Artist" (summer 2015 exhibition) celebrates this rich and vibrant heritage of creativity, artistry, and design. The exhibition showcases jewelry created by past and contemporary master American Indian artists. Within the Center's collection are stunning pieces of artwork with traditional turquoise and silver--both historic pieces and contemporary works. What is your favorite piece and why? Do you own any turquoise/silver jewelry? We'd love to hear from you; even better still: We'd love for you to visit us here in Cody!
