Preston Monongye is a key figure in the evolution of Southwest Native American Jewelry. He created art in silver, gold and turquoise. His designs were inspired from his Hopi heritage... yet, he moved them into the abstract much like impressionists and expressionists did with painted art.

Preston Monongye is a key figure in the evolution of Southwest Native American Jewelry. He created art in silver, gold and turquoise. His designs were inspired from his Hopi heritage... yet, he moved them into the abstract much like impressionists and expressionists did with painted art. Preston Monongye had a way with color... he used turquoise, coral, jet and shell, which are traditional Hopi gemstones... but Preston assembled them in new, extremely pleasing patterns. His tufa casting produced deep, free flowing patterns that lent itself perfectly to inlay. Preston Monongye sometimes inlaid his jewelry himself... sometimes it was inlaid in collaboration with Lee Yazzie and sometimes his son Jesse. In my opinion, the inlay on this bracelet was done by Jesse Monongye. Sedona Indian Jewelry buys and sells Preston Monongye Jewelry.
