Native American Beadwork

by William C Orchard

A much-admired folk art, beadwork decorates items of personal adornment as well as ceremonial and everyday objects. Native American artists are among the craft's most skilled practitioners, and this study, offers a well-illustrated look at baskets and bowls, necklaces, robes, cradles, and other objects, all richly embellished in beads made from gold and precious stones, shells, bone, and other materials. In addition to over 30 black-and-white photos, numerous line figures depict the techniques used in their creation. Unabridged republication of "Beads and Beadwork of the American Indians, originally published by Lancaster Press, Inc., Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1929. Introduction. 31 halftones. 136 figures.
