Steve and Diana Begner of Turkey Mountain Traders will share stories and images of the history and traditions of Southwest jewelry. The lecture will begin with early examples of Navajo, Zuni and Pueblo silverwork, through the history of this beautiful artistry until the time when the art form changed to a name-driven marketplace (about 1965).  As that occurs, we witness a new generation of leading artists, including Kenneth Begay, Charles Loloma, and Preston Monongye, “the Big Three” of this era.
