Silver & Stone: Profiles of American Indian Jewelers gives readers a glimpse of the talents and passions of more than 65 Native American Indian jewelers, including Cody A. Sanderson, Steve Yellowhorse, and Michael Roanhorse. Written by Mark Bahti, the book covers artists of diverse tribes and ages, as well as their unique approaches to, and techniques for, making jewelry. In Stiver dr Stone, Bahti's unique perspective focuses on the artists' personal lives, hopes, and dreams, allowing readers to learn about the person behind the jewelry. He writes "And this is the whole point: from my perspective and, I believe, from that of most of the folks with whom I work, this business, the Indian arts business, is not about business so much as it is about relationships, and that is what I hope is conveyed by the words of the artists profiled in this volume." The jewelers and their works embody originality, innovation, and individuality, giving readers insight into American Indian jewelry as an art form.
