American Indian Inlay Jewelry

Gemstone Inlay Jewelry is some of the most popular American Jewelry on the market today.  Inlay jewelry is made around the world, however it was made popular by Zuni Native American artists during the Route 66 days. In those days the inlay jewelry was mainly made in channels.  Some of the finer artisans would get into multi color inlay in one channel.  The Zuni artisans would use a classic color scheme of red coral, Turquoise, Mother or Pearl, and black Jet.  The would also make designs in different channels with only Turquoise, Coral or Black Jet Inlay Jewelry.  Every year their skills would increase and the Zuni would try to out do each other in the intricate patterns in their inlay jewelry.  As time went buy American Indian Inlay Jewelry became more and more popular and started to rival Navajo style silver jewelry in sales.  Once this happened Native Peoples from other tribes as well as anglo artisans start to make silver inlay jewelry.
