There was a review that suggested purchasing the book along with Hallmarks of the Southwest written by her husband. I did this. There are a lot of Hopi Hallmarks in this book, that are missed in the other. The way they are laid out is the problem. There is not an understandable order at first glance. It was helpful to find a name, but there was little information about the names. Had to use her husbands book for that. The history of how things got started is a good read.
This book I love, the history behind the Hopi & their silversmithing was facinating! The photos of the old jewelry just make me drool! vintage is my favorite!
